Kiev estimated fire damage at arsenals: minus 5 billion dollars and large caliber

The fires that have become more frequent in recent years at the arsenals of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have led the state to huge losses. Experts give different figures of damage: from hundreds of millions to five billion dollars. It is reported by Ukrainian news TSN channel.

Kiev estimated fire damage at arsenals: minus 5 billion dollars and large caliber

However, the financial component of such fires is not the only concern for the Ukrainian authorities. In particular, we are talking about the consequences that can critically affect the combat capability of the state. Thus, as a result of a fire at the military arsenals near Inchi near Chernigov, Ukraine lost a huge amount of large-caliber shells. But the independent state has always experienced difficulties with the lack of large-caliber ammunition and in the event of an aggravation of the military situation could not provide the batteries of large calibers with the necessary shells.

In this regard, the Ukrainian authorities had two ways to solve this problem: to deploy their own production of such ammunition, or to buy them from their Western partners at exorbitant prices. In the second case, there was an additional problem with matching calibers. However, the US and NATO were not in a hurry to secure their vassal.

Recently, Ukraine still managed to launch the release of large-caliber shells. Meanwhile, the armed forces continue to experience their acute shortage, and the “enemy” knows about this Achilles heel (that is, Russia), some Ukrainian military experts say. In addition, the “enemy of Ukraine” has information about the exact location of storage facilities with ammunition deficient for the Armed Forces and deliberately hits these warehouses, ”said Ukrainian expert Konstantin Mashovets.

The statistics speak for themselves. Six large fires in military ammunition depots occurred in four years. If this is not stopped, the Ukrainian artillery will actually face such a concept as “shell hunger”.

Earlier on our site there was a material that the majority of Ukrainian experts still believe that the "Russian trace" in the case of fires in warehouses should be looked for last.

        DPR intelligence says that stocks of 9M38 missiles for the Buk anti-aircraft missile system were stored in a military warehouse in the Chernihiv region, which “quite accidentally” burned down along with the accompanying documentation. And the fire itself by "accidental" coincidence occurred after a visit to the warehouses of NATO representatives.

            This is the response of the Poroshenko gang to a request for documentation on Bukov missiles from The Hague. There is no documentation (it was stored in this warehouse with missiles), there is no answer to The Hague.

          do you think NATO representatives saw the documents and ordered the warehouse to be burned? and even leave the "Russian trace"? there is logic in this.

    they need to steal less, or they would have sold the whole warehouse, left empty storages so that there was nothing to burn. Now they’ll probably release the new shells, and miserable crumbs will go into everything, and the rest will go to the black market for ammunition, which may be try to push the republics ...

      On the black market, rifle guns go well and grenades, large-caliber shells are a specific product. Most likely, either sabotage or a deplorable state of warehouses shortened somewhere

    I remember the fire in the warehouses near Vinnitsa. I live near Kiev, but the roar was distinct. We thought a strange thunderstorm with a clear sky with stars. Estimate the distance and scale. Until now, everything there is covered in darkness, official statements are worthless. As always, saboteurs-drones stopudov and Putin dropped the KGB crust there ..

    Ukrainians are not lucky, either the local ensigns smashed everything, or the authorities sold everything ... or maybe they started a war where ..., or wanted to start it?

      If our people wanted and could work like that, then why wait 4 years ?! These warehouses were supposed to burn everything in 2014 ...
      I think Russia has nothing to do with it, now in Ukraine only the lazy does not steal, they drag everything, and a fire is a way to simply escape responsibility. And the story with the BUK missiles and the documentation for it is also real. The power in Ukraine may change in a year, suddenly someone wants to check the data of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, not even for the sake of the truth, but in order to "drown" Poroshenko by demanding decent ransom ...

          What got from the USSR flew up into the air. Even to metal and to remake into industrial explosives, and then how much useful things were done. The whole legacy was so stupidly clicked ... The wrong country was called Honduras ...

      This purely cut dough and sweeping tracks. This will have a minimal effect on reducing the intensity of shelling of Donbass. Shells in the right amount rivet.

But here we look, we are amazed ... I cannot but rejoice that there are no victims and moreover, fewer shells will fall in the Donbass.
