According to the Ukrainian military prosecutor, a comprehensive forensic examination is being conducted with the participation of specialists from the Kiev Research Institute. It is noted that “ballistic components” are being studied. Following the results of the examination, a procedural decision is planned.
Earlier, the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine decided to classify court decisions on the incident at the Arsenal in Ichnya. Before such a decision was made, the Ukrainian military announced that two unknown men in camouflage had allegedly been spotted near the arsenal, which the nominated group of alarm subsequently could not be detected.
President of Ukraine Poroshenko, just a few hours after the first explosion, stated that the perpetrators must be searched for in Russia, “since it is in a straight line to the Russian border from Ichni, about 160 km”.
