Before the fire at the munition depot in Vinnytsia, a group of presumable saboteurs was apprehended, according to the Ukrainian Armed Forces liaison Sergei Misyura.
The search and pursuit of the saboteur units in Vinnytsia was conducted under the guise of anti terrorism training manoeuvres, Misyura claims.
“With the position and target of the bulk of the forces determined, they were apprehended. But the bulk doesn’t mean everyone. Hence, one unit managed to deliver explosives by drone. The depot sentries reported weird sounds from above, and then the munitions that were on the outside started getting blown up. This being an act of terrorism by means of drone use is a confirmed fact,” says Misyura in his facebook.
He also asserts that the munitions the Armed Forces require the most are safe, as they’ve been kept in underground storage units. Tank shells and 120mm landmines were kept on the outside, and they were the ones to detonate.
The fire near Vinnytsia started the night before, after the munitions detonated. The mass media reported on the BM-21 “Grad”, BM-27 “Uragan” and BM-30 “Smerch” missiles being kept at the depot. The fire has destroyed around a third of munitions.
