Chief of Armament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Mykola Shevtsov denied the information about the congestion of the arsenal in Kalynivka of Vinnytsia region. This was reported by the press service of the Defense Ministry of Ukraine.
Major General Mykola Shevtsov said that information about the congestion of the arsenal was not true. He also said that the representatives of the operational headquarters did a flyover above the military unit.
"70% of the territory of the arsenal is not damaged by fire and explosions," Shevtsov said.
According to the Ministry of Defense, the intensity of explosions has significantly decreased. If at night it was about 60 explosions per minute, now it's about 2 to 3 explosions. They do not pose threats to the local population, he noted.
Servicemen of the unit, who were not involved in the localization of the fire, are already returning to the unit.
As we reported earlier, one of the biggest ammunition depots in Ukraine is on fire since 10:00 p.m., September 26. Thousands of people from Kalynivka and other nearby villages had to get evacuated, many of them using their own transport. Volunteers were posting to social networks for the whole night offering help and providing new details on the explosions.
