The main inquiry line of the incident at the ammunition depot in Ichnia, Chernihiv region is sabotage. President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.

"It is offensive, painful; such stories that are the results of the activity of the subversive groups, according to the investigation, tarnish the image of the Ukrainian soldiers and the special service. They overshadow the fair work of the warriors who defend the motherland with devotion. The first data, as the investigation provided, rejects the negligence and the main inquiry line is the diversion. It should teach us the decisive actions," the president said.

"What did we see in British society? The demands to dismiss the leadership of the intelligence, special services, army, and government? Rather, the country united, figured out the Russian terrorists, showed this to the whole world, imposed the sanctions against Russia. Ukraine and the world supported them," Poroshenko explained.
