The explosion as of September 25 happened on the territory of the former transport enterprise, not at the chemical factory. Now there is a military unit of so-called "Donetsk People's Republic" (DPR) armed formations. Radio Liberty reported that referring to editor of Ostriv edition Serhiy Harmash.
"According to our sources in Donetsk, the explosions took place, I do not know their reason - whether the shellings were or not as various sources say different things so I will be asserting the fact. The explosions took place on the territory of the former transport enterprise, which is taken by one of the DPR military units. Probably, there are ammunition stockpiles and some explosive substances on the territory of the "military unit", which caused the explosions," he wrote.
Radio Liberty emphasized that the information on the Russian 24 TV channel changed dramatically. At the beginning, they said that the fire had started on the ammunition depot. Then the illegal military formations accused Ukrainian Armed Forces as they seemed to attack the DPR military unit.
The HQ of the Joint Forces Operation Area stated they were not shelling.
"Our weaponry is taken off according to the previous agreements and we did not move the artillery forward. That is why I can say definitely that we were not shooting and this was not our business. I state officially that no shellings were in Donetsk," Head of the JFO press service Viktor Shchubets said.
