Agromol dairy bombed in Ukraine

August 30, 2022

Status: Unknown

Agromol was bombed in April. Last update: August 30th, 2022.

Most recent contact with the farmer I’ve heard of was posted on Facebook by Van Den.

The owner wrote me that : The village is currently occupied. Once freed from the occupiers, we immediately start analyzing losses, damages and the recovery process. Thank you, they will let me know when they release me

The “…when they release me” part doesn’t sound good. We know that Kharkiv was occupied by the Russian Federation’s military at the time.

Other reports have stated that soldiers arrived at the farm and began shooting cows after the bombing, corroborating the possibility that RF military personnel were on-site for some amount of time.

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.

Ukrainian farmers’ anthem This Eyelash was performed by Serhii Lavrenko at Agroshow 2021, last Fall.

This is what’s being targeted, bombed, “denazified,” and “purged of degeneracy” in Ukraine.

Delivery through danger

On the first days of the invasion, Agromol continued making deliveries into Kharkiv as bombs dropped on the city.

Locals report:

“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.

Facebook post from the group Роганский жилмассив. Решаем вместе!

STOV “Agrosvit”, a farm in the village. Shestakove, Vovchansky district (now Chuguiv district), Kharkiv region. The farm as of 23.02.2022 – 40 tons of milk daily, in total approximately 3000 cows (750 nettles, 1380 forage herd, 850 chicks up to 15 months. ) About 10% are alive, but there is no electricity, therefore no water. Guess the rest will not survive. As of today, the invaders have driven out all employees from the village. T. well. no one even to feed them. They walk on their own in the surroundings of the village. Disaster!

who can help ???

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.

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.
