The warehouse of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry in Ichnia, Chernihiv region could be blown up with the aid of a cell phone signal. Anatoliy Matios, the Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine said this in a commentary.
According to the official, only one mobile terminal was operative in the area during the incident. That phone had no IMEI code so it could not be traced.
