Walker: explosions in Kalinovka will not affect the allocation to Ukraine of lethal weapons
Explosions and fire at the ammunition depot in Kalynivka in no way will affect the U.S. decision on granting Ukraine lethal weapons.
This was stated by the “Voice of America” special envoy on Ukraine U.S. State Department’s Kurt Volker, writes UKRINFORM.
“We don’t know all the circumstances. A lot of people are interested in the explosions, but there’s also the possibility that it was an accident. I think that the U.S. decision to provide weapons would be taken on the basis of the objectives of the US in this matter,” he said.
All evacuated residents of Kalinovka in the explosion returned home – the Vinnytsia regional state administration
Recall, September 26, at about 22:00 there was information about the explosions of ammunition in the Arsenal of the defense Ministry of Ukraine near the town of Kalynivka. Was carried out the evacuation of residents of Kalinovka and settlements in the 10-kilometer zone (Pavlivka, Medvedka, Road, Seal, Stryzhavka). All of the region evacuated more than 30 thousand people.
Yesterday, the General staff informed that the ammunition depot in Kalynivka the situation has stabilized. In particular, as at 17.00 on 27 September, the intensity of explosions has dropped to 3-4 per minute. Evacuated more than 30,000 people. Today it was about single explosions that do not threaten the population.
A few months before the explosions from Kalinovka took out almost half of the ammunition – Biryukov
Recall that the US administration and both parties in Congress in favour of granting Ukraine lethal defensive weapons.
But the final decision remains with the President of the United States Donald trump.
We will remind, earlier in Kiev there has arrived the Minister of defence of the USA James Mattis, he had to discuss with the Ukrainian authorities, in particular, the provision of lethal weapons. The state Department emphasizesthat the decision is still pending.
