Documentation for claim

Period/date: 30. August 2016

Debunk claim:

A small amount of pests was found in certain fields growing grains intended for export to China. The affected area however is so small that it could not affect the amount of total exports to China. These pests were found by Ukrainian inspectors checking the designated grain fields, the grain has not yet been exported to China and China has not rejected it: http://www.stopfake.org/en/fake-china-rejects-grain-imports-from-ukraine/
