Explosions in artillery warehouses in Chernihiv region can be the result of a Russian sabotage and negligence, however all such incidents testify to the authorities ‘ inability to control the situation in the Armed forces of Ukraine. This is in exclusive comments the online edition of UA.News said the Chairman of the Board of the Foundation “Maidan zakordonnih Ref” Bohdan Yaremenko.
The expert sees two likely causes of the fire and further explosions at military depots near Ichnya: diversion and sabotage or negligence. He is convinced that to explain all the root causes of this incident have special Commission of inquiry and “it is desirable that this information was the most public and authentic”. At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that over the last three years this is not the first similar case, and the government traditionally tries to write off the blame for the diversion of the aggressor.

“In 2015 this is the fifth case of explosions in artillery warehouses and its just like all previous ones, trying to cover up the interference and sabotage of Russia’s actions. This suggests that the leadership of the Armed forces, we are not on the ground that it could not provide reliable defense of the military installations of the country. Surprising is the fact that other strategic assets – government officials, public authorities, strategic infrastructure, is not subject to attack as often. For some reason this only happens with the military locations that are used by the Armed forces, which casts doubt on versions of exclusively Russian intervention, the impact of any attack”
Bohdan Yaremenko also connects current explosions near Ichnya with the beginning of the meeting of the Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate on the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The expert reminded that the previous incidents also marvelous way coincided with various anniversaries and the authorities used this factor to remove themselves from liability for any mismanagement of the army.
“Every such incident that has happened in previous years, coincided with many events. This incident, in particular, coincided with the beginning of the international aviation exercises “clear sky-2018” with participation of NATO countries, as it coincides with the Holy feast of the day of Defender of the Fatherland. In any of these situations, you can always look for some symbolism, but this does not diminish the practical question behind this: “When at last the APU and the Supreme commander will be able to bring the situation under control?” The answer to this question we have over 4.5 years of war. And it’s depressing”
