A huge fire at one Ukraine’s largest ammunition depots in Kalynivka village (Vinnytsia region) has set off a series of explosions.

Censor.Net has reported that explosions can be heard in the city, the explosion of ammunition after explosions is well noticeable. The warehouse in Kalynivka has a total area of more than 1000 hectares and is full of ammunition of various types. The store is open, the warehouse loading rates are exceeded several times.

This is repetition of the tragedy of Balakliia and Svatovo. September 22, the Mariupol warehouse in Novoyanisolivka was destroyed. Now Kalynivka is under attack.

This was our second most important ammunition depot after Balakliia. That is, you can already predict when and where the next explosion might occur. After all, the program of dispersal of ammunition systematically fails.

The enemy continues to systematically attack the military infrastructure of Ukraine. This catastrophe deprives us of huge ammunition stocks. The ammunition was not dispersed despite repeated hostile attacks and the destruction of our strategic reserves.

This is a heavy blow to the defense capability of Ukraine, which requires extraordinary measures and decisions.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure the safety of our stockpiles of ammunition, despite the fact that this year, 300 million hryvnia were allocated, numerous commissions, checkups, and inspections. This is the fourth warehouse, which exploded in the last two years. Warehouse had a strategic relevance.

Putin also decided to bring his congratulations (to President Poroshenko – Ed.).

God forbid that someone dies.
