      gunpowder in itself does not ignite, negligence and only how many people should die so that everyone understands how to handle ammunition, like they are in a box, they themselves cannot poke capsules, time will tell

        is not a fact! maybe a shell with a marriage or some junk! but most likely 90% is negligence!

      twenty-five again ................. fathers-commanders, where are you looking? how many nineteen-year-old conscripts can be destroyed by negligence?
      Here it is necessary to understand: is it the negligence of the fathers-commanders or the idiocy of nineteen-year-old conscripts? Example:
      From the article: on August 7, the territory of the landfill was cleared of unexploded ordnance. Private Shuparsky hooked with his foot an unexploded 100 mm shell located on the edge of the pit, which fell to the bottom and exploded. As a result, three soldiers and an officer were injured.
      Before clearing the landfill, training on safety measures is obligatory carried out, where the duties of the persons involved in the clearing with obligatory painting in the magazine are communicated to the personnel! When combing the landfill, a soldier just has to go and look at his feet, if he sees any object, stick a peg with a red rag next to him and move on. Beyond the chain, miners move, see a flag, inspect, and if necessary undermine. Always, it is clearly indicated that it is forbidden to touch all objects. All! Here I have a question, what did Private Shuparsky think about, clinging a shell to his leg, and even on the edge of the funnel, and what was the fault of his father-commander? I am 100% sure that the training was conducted and there is a fighter painting. And how can the father-commander keep track of 30 fighters for each of the legs?

    Either there was a pricking of the so-called HUV on the cartridge case, or open fire fell on the powder charge. Non-compliance with safety measures. Our ballistic gunpowder will not ignite by itself.

    Just recently there was an article that somewhere there Mothers of conscripts near HF are on duty, afraid for their children who also unload shells.
    Yolas are fallen! No wonder they are afraid! Will we be losing young guys in peacetime for a long time ???

    Tell me the competent experts, maybe it was "there was an explosion of a powder charge from an artillery shell of 122 mm caliber." How to understand this? Is it necessary to pound a projectile on a powder charge?

      Any modern shell has protection against an arbitrary explosion, but if the warehouses exploded before then you need to be careful. The powder charge is also different, you can say the author just wrote ...
      When departing from the barrel, the projectile is brought into a combat position.

      I had a case in the army: two idiots decided to check what would happen if they filled the shell shell with gunpowder to the top and set fire to it from above. It was in the Sevastopol adits, in a deep dungeon. The unit was engaged in the seizure of 45-mm anti-tank shells that have been stored there since the Second World War.
      As a result, one received a major burn to the muzzle, and the other "hero" left for demobilization without a leg below the knee. It's good that they stayed alive.

      All the troubles are from gouging and indiscipline.

    Ammunition disposal safety is paramount. Well, something constantly prevents you from following this rule.

    Often torn in recent years. It seems that deliberately. The warehouse caught fire, exploded, how many there were, the horseradish will take it apart, and you see the dacha is already, and the new car in the garage warms the soul.

      mainly for disposal. all junk, well, and storage, too, for the same reason! and of course, it’s possible to call a crucible a special factor that commanders, that privates themselves .. who unloaded 10000 pieces and thinks everything can be done .. but it’s how it happens ... well, and safety precautions, this beast in our country for some reason sucks works! worked in foreign factories, there it is the first thing you should know! take a test every month! punished for any jamb according to the technique, to the flesh until dismissal! and we have? and in our painting I put that I supposedly listened to a lecture, and there weren’t even a lecture either! and then they break their hands, tear off their fingers, kill ... everything oooh ... and then everything is new ... well, they can get a little grunt, and that's it ... like that

    I’m constantly thinking, who else should be blown up to solve this problem once and for all? Relative of the Minister of Defense ?? or maybe someone else? Every month, children almost die from the disposal of ammunition, it does not fit into any framework am

    My suggestion . Collect all dodgers of high-ranking parents and send them to the landfill for the disposal of explosives. I think that in a week all the landfills will be equipped with staff, demining machines and disposal equipment, and all that is required for normal functioning. Sincerely.
