Cargill's sunflower seed plant in the city of Donetsk caught fire after shelling hit the area, Thursday.

Cargill closed its plant on July 4 as tensions mounted between Kiev forces and pro-Russian separatists. Shortly after the facility was occupied by an anti-Kiev militia. Although damage will only be fully assessed when the fire is extinguished, a Ukrainian government spokesperson commented that Ukraine will likely lose 15 percent of its grain crop.

Cargill employs more than 700 workers. It has been active in the Ukraine for over 20 years, with locations in Kiev, Donetsk, Kakhovka, Kutsovka, Braginovka, Balakeya, Konstantinovka, Korystovka and Khaschevatoye.
