ER Editor: Hat-tip to Ed Griffin and his site NeedtoKnowNews for alerting us to this story. That (allegedly) 25% of Ukraine farmland is owned by US mega corporations was published by Thierry Meyssan recently in an article we published. See —
The Canadian incident comes at a time when Polish farmers are up in arms against unfair competition from the US-Ukrainian food industry. Three US agribusiness multinationals, Cargill, Dupont and Monsanto, have bought up a quarter of Ukraine’s territory. They import their cereals and chickens into the European Union at unbeatable prices. They don’t pay for their GMO seeds donated by the US State Department. The European Commission had initially banned their imports, knowing that these products did not meet EU standards, but bowed to US pressure. Three states, including Poland, passed laws banning them. However, President Zelensky has announced that, as these states are members of the EU, he is taking them to the World Trade Organization (WTO).
G. Edward Griffin provides more amplification of corporate interest in Ukrainian land:
Ukraine farmland, and its grain production that fed the world, is now owned by mega-corporations based in the US and EU, including Vanguard Group, Kopernik Global Investors, BNP Asset Management Holding, Goldman Sachs-owned NN Investment Partners Holdings, and Norges Bank Investment Management. Several large US pension funds, foundations, and university endowments are also invested in Ukrainian land through NCH Capital – a US-based private equity fund, which is the fifth largest landholder in the country.
Ukraine’s agricultural land was taken over when a law passed in March 2020 lifted the country’s moratorium on sales of agricultural land. Journalist Don DeBar explained how these firms dumped off cheap Ukrainian wheat on the Polish market to undermine Poland’s support for the war.
This is supposed to be GMO food, as Meyssan indicates above; other reports talking about Ukraine grain coming into EU countries said it was ‘toxic’. This grain has been dumped in several eastern EU countries, not just Poland, undermining the farming sector in those countries.
Notice below what happens when western financial institutions move in — they indebt your country and hand over national assets to private debt holders. Ukraine sounds more and more like a decimated country.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
