Cargill Says Plant Under Armed Occupation in Ukraine

Cargill Inc. suspended operations at a sunflower-oil plant in the Donetsk region in eastern Ukraine, where the government is battling pro-Russian separatists, and said the facility has been occupied by armed individuals.

The plant was shut July 4 because of an “escalation of tension in the region,” Anastasia Dudley, a spokeswoman for Minneapolis-based Cargill, said yesterday in an e-mail.
