Ukraine: Russian Forces capture biggest Ukrainian arms depot with thousands of munitions

Russian engineering troops seized control of a Ukrainian army arsenal with thousands of tonnes of ammunition in the Kharkov Region, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Friday.

“During their special military operation, the Russian engineering troops seized control of a Ukrainian army arsenal on an area of several hundred hectares with depots containing thousands of tonnes of ammunition in the Kharkov Region,” the ministry said in a statement.

The depots are storing, in particular, munitions for multiple launch rocket systems with cluster warheads, the Russian Defense Ministry specified.

“These are the munitions that the Ukrainian forces used to bombard residential quarters of populated areas, constantly endangering civilians,” the ministry stressed, adding that the depots also contained ammunition for small arms, tube artillery, the armament of air defense systems and various grenades.

“In addition to Soviet-made ammunition, the depots stored Western-made mines and shells,” the ministry stressed.
