Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense needs to boost the security of military bases, arsenals, and storages, where the troops keep hundreds of thousands of tons of ammunition; the army needs 300,000 U.S. dollars to build the even-tempered underground ammunition depots. Stepan Poltorak, Ukraine’s defense minister said that as quoted by the ministry’s press service.
‘By the end of the month, we’re going to start solving this issue. We plan to construct underground ammunition depots; this way, we’ll be able to keep these 400,000 tons of ammunition – even if a direct armed aggression takes place and the enemy lands air strikes on our bases,’ Poltorak stressed. He added it’s impossible to solve this problem in just one year, which is why the Ministry developed a special-purpose program to be implemented.
