For the second time in this blog’s three-year history, an ammunition dump exploded in Ukraine. It’s basically like living in Chicago, except att the gunfire occurs in one day.
Explosions and fire have hit an ammunition depot in Ukraine in a possible act of sabotage, leading to the evacuation of thousands of people. Videos on social media showed the blaze and explosions on the horizon near Ichnya, Chernihiv region.
About 12,000 people were moved from the area around the depot, about 109 miles north-east of the capital Kiev. There were no casualties.
Deputy commander of the General Staff, Rodyon Tymoshenko, told a news conference the incident began with four explosions across the depot.
“The intensity of the blasts suggests that it was most probably sabotage,” he said.
Oh, please, it’s not like a despotic Soviet strongman has an axe to grind against Ukraine. Just stop with your conspiracy theories, Comrade Alex Jones!
