The State Emergency Service workers said it was self-ignition. No casualties were reported.  

Earlier, the General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces assumes that the reason for explosions at Balakliya ammo depot in Kharkiv region earlier this month is the engine’s ignition of Kub, mobile surface-to-air missile. The General Staff press service reported it.

"Perhaps, when loading the remnants of ammunition and their elements prepared for the further destruction (disposal), the solid-fuel engine for Kub mobile surface-to-air missile ignited, and other objects, prepared for further destruction, exploded as well," the message reads.
