We are Agromol
Agromol was a dairy serving Kharkiv.
Their website is down, here’s an archive link to agromolshop.com.ua
Agromol produced raw milk, kefir, pasteurized milk, and many other dairy products for the people of Kharkiv.
Here’s an archive link for their raw milk
Here’s an archive link for their kefir
They had two farm locations and served a number of stores in Kharkiv including their own Agromol Shop.
Videos of the farm before
From their YouTube channel: Агромол – з натурального молока (Agromol – from natural milk)
They were proud of their work.
They welcomed farm tours. This video shows a group touring their milking parlor, meeting their cows and calves in the winter of 2020.
They had a chef and posted recipe videos.
Agromol held events and put on farm shows for their community. Here’s a video from the maze at Agromol Fest, by Ukrainian drone pilot Ruslan Movchan.

This is what’s being targeted, bombed, “denazified,” and “purged of degeneracy” in Ukraine.
Milk delivery through the danger
On the first days of the invasion, Agromol continued making deliveries into Kharkiv as bombs dropped on the city.
“During the first days of the war in Kharkov, Agromol was the only place where you could buy milk. We bought everything that was until the expiration date. They helped our children get through those early days!”
Very early on I started looking for Ukrainian farms to follow, along with some Russian farms, to get a view from the ground. I found Agromol.
At the time, they were only posting stories of lists of the drop off locations they were able to supply each day.
They’d post every day or so letting people know they were still bringing food into the city, until they didn’t.
Earliest footage of the attack
This may be the last video taken by Agromol.
Agromol was targeted
Some of the following images are graphic.
Hundreds of cows were killed and left to waste. The farm’s building, equipment, and vehicles were destroyed.
You can see one cow standing alone in the wreckage next to her fellow cows, now dead.
Crater left by one of the bombs.
Cows in their stalls, feed present, slaughtered while they were eating.
Another cow in the wreckage covered in snow.
Mass grave of Agromol’s cows.
Video after the bombing
Eerie footage shows the quiet aftermath. A few surviving cows are seen standing, unsupervised and confused, surrounded by the rubble that once made up their home.

The Telegraph mentions Agromol in May 2022 while threading their article discussing the Holodomor.

Vasili Kush walks through a farmyard amid the sound of regular nearby shelling, in the village of Mala Tokmatchka which he refuses to leave saying he has nowhere to go and that no one will take him because he is a farm worker, near the southern front of fighting between Ukrainian and Russian forces, south of Zaporizhzhia on April 23, 2022
