The explosions at the armament depot of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Kalynivka (Vinnytsia region) will not influence the decision of the US to supply the arms to Ukraine. US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker claimed this to Voice of America.
‘We do not know all circumstances. A lot of people are interested in the explosions but there is also a possibility that it was a casualty. I think that the decision of the US towards the supply of arms will be made on the basis of the US goals in this issue’, he said.
As it was reported earlier, fire at the ammunition storages in Kalynivka of Vinnytsia region began at 22:00 on September 26. Two women suffered in the result of the incident and were hospitalized. Almost 30 000 local citizens were evacuated from the dangerous area.
The Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office of the Central region of Ukraine opened the criminal proceeding due to sabotage. The investigators enquire four versions of the fire in Kalynivka.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman reported on September 28 that the explosions in Kalynivka ceased and the rescuers finished the clearing of the settlements. The evacuated citizens began to come back after 15:00 on September 28.
