Will be modern and reliable. APU begin construction of ammunition stores

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the start of construction of 15-ti modern ammunition depots on three military arsenals, reports TASS.

We are building storages that are not only reliably protected from damage by enemy fire weapons, they provide for the arrangement of modern automatic security systems, alerts and fire suppression,
said Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak.

According to him, "the relevant technical documentation has already been developed, tender procedures have been carried out."

Recall that over the past 2, several major fires occurred in military depots on the territory of Ukraine. So, in March, 2017, in Balakliya, Kharkiv region, destroyed about 70% of ammunition as a result of a fire. On May 3 of this year, the repository caught fire again - around 40 shells exploded.

In September last year, a fire occurred also at an ammunition depot in Kalinovka, Vinnitsa region. Fire destroyed up to a third of ammunition.

The causes of fires were both staff negligence and the diversion of “enemy forces”.

    And they do not plan to arrange the release of ammunition?
    And then the Soviet legacy is not infinite ...

      They have long been using Polish, Romanian, Hungarian and Bulgarian ammunition. Moreover, the Soviet stocks are chosen for all, and the Bulgarians have new ones.

        Well, they still have the basic calibers. Although something they really have to buy. That's just being supplied with wheels in case of aggravation, they can remain without BC. While the shootings are going on, there is still enough., But in the case of a serious movement, it is no more. It will not be possible to create a normal supply of BP by such purchases, and everything purchased in the event of a normal exacerbation will be consumed very quickly. request
        Yes, and so there are those calibers that eastern Europe does not have and can not deliver - pc to Hurricanes and Tornadoes or shells to Peonies. Well, rockets for points, of course. And to deploy its own production of the same self-made rockets for the tornado that they called Alder is very expensive AND LONG. They will not be able to help in the near future. Th, every blown up warehouse reduces their capabilities for normal databases. hi

          No matter what "modern" storage facilities are built, this will not save the cunning merchant-chief of the warehouse. And a couple of days before the audit, such a warehouse will light up no worse than the old one.

      This is the little things respected. The main thing is to "master" the money. And what will be stored there is a "secondary" question. But will this “TAM” exist at all? Look at the great Chinese (pardonite Ukrainian) wall, how much money was allocated! fellow The wall turned out - a sight for sore eyes! good Even invisible! The enemy does not see her, but she is! belay

          hi , Paul.
          “Give money” and “do not remove sanctions from Russia” are the quintessential essence of Ruin’s foreign policy.

          Well, and, as a complement to that, SP-2 and Krymsky Most. By the way, in Ruin they just noticed that the bridge was built.

          Meanwhile, it opens on May 15-16.

      They have them, since the days of the USSR ..! It’s just that everything was quickly emptied (it took just 25 years!))))) Again, the money will be ripped off from the population ... But there’s nothing to destroy it with money and destroyed .. But in the Donbass, the factories work with our help and of course there is something to defend!

      Given the explosions in the warehouses of the Armed Forces, they are truly not endless.

      For their new "high-tech" ammunition, a reliable storage is required just to ensure combustion and detonation only inside the storage, without external attributes of fireworks ... lol

      If it’s adjusted, then the NATO caliber, and these will be disposed of gradually in the Donbass, I don’t understand what kind of entry into NATO Poroshenko is talking about, if the 152mm howitzers (NATO 155) tank guns 125mm (NATO 120mm) 5.45mm cartridges (NATO 5.56mm) to drag the old stuff along with shells somewhere in Africa, making a normal, modern army, to the NATO standard (aircraft identification systems, NATO camouflage, walkie-talkies with their range, etc.) but so far, apart from loud slogans for joining NATO, steps (on the contrary, Crimea is lost, and according to the NATO charter, a country that has territorial disputes cannot join the Alliance, here either recognize Crimea as Russian territory, or abandon the dream)

    It’s like a fence at the border - as long as you are about to build, there will be nothing to store, and there will be no money :)

    Will they also be protected from the sale? Legends have been circulating about the abilities of Ukrainian ensigns since the days of the Soviet Army.

    Aha ha ha ha ha ha :))))). The same cut of money as the Great Ukrainian Wall. According to estimates, each storage facility will cost billions of hryvnias, but in reality they will build from the waste of sawmills and building materials factories.

    Sales volumes covered up com. secret, secrecy, 6 sleeping arsenals.
    But sometimes it pops up. In 2000, a deal with Ethiopia fell through due to an embargo (court, forfeit). Volume: 50 million rounds of 7,62.

    Those. should this be understood so that the storage data will no longer constantly burn? And then what will Patro and Mykola sell from under the field?
