For his birthday, NATO started an anti-terror operation drills near the large city of Vinnytsa in the Western Ukraine.
Vinnytsiaka oblast is the center of the Maidan coup and the war against Donbass. It’s from here in February 2014 the tank divisions and artillery brigades of the foreign and domestic mercenaries went to attack Crimea and Donbass.
Kalynivka airfield is also a home to the 51st Separate Helicopter Brigade and the Yaguar special-operations forces a.k.a. the National Guards, who violated their constitutional oath to protect the constitutional order and their president.
September 19, the occupational NATO forces have been getting ready for the anti-terror operation “drills.”

On September 26, the anti-terror drills starts in Kalynivka Vinnytsiaka district with the fire and explosions on the last remaining in Ukraine large arms depot, 48th Arsenal (в/ч А1119), the last biggest arms depot with 10sq km, containing at capacity up to 188,000 tons of explosives, including missiles for the tactical missile systems, and the short-term range ballistic complexes like Grad, Tochka, Smerch, Uragan… Reportedly, up to 10,000 of wagons of ammunition.
It’s a common understanding that the Ukraine is an enormous hub for illegal arms trade from the West to the rest of the world. So, the regular explosions of the country’s big and small arms depots are part of the trade.
Alex just reminded me that Poroshenko is getting rid of the evidence after a scandal around the Amnesty International report on participation of the Ukrainian state company in delivering arms to South Sudan that runs counter to the Arms Trade Agreement, signed by Ukraine.

March 2017: Balakleya munitions depot disaster Ukraine
Yuri Butusov, a former journalist who famously declared that amidst the “Russian invasion Ukrainians should be prepared for all out war” back in 2014. He now works for Poroshenko and his job is to write hilarious and delirious statements like today:
I am going to try to preserve his unique style.
“The largest ammunition depot of the Armed forces of Ukraine in Kalinovka is 20 km from Vinnitsa has been attacked.”
“According to a source “Censor.Net” explosions are being heard in the city, well-marked expansion of ammunition over the area after the blasts. The warehouse in the village and located on a total area of over 1000 hectares and is packed with ammunition of various types. It’s an open-air storage, and the standards of the warehouse load have been exceeded several times.
It’s a repeat of tragedy in Balakleya and Svatovo. Just on September 22nd, a warehouse was destroyed near Mariupol in Novosiolovca. Now, Kalinovka exploded.
The enemy continues to inflict strikes on military infrastructure of Ukraine.
This accident deprives us of the huge stockpiles of ammunition. We failed to disperse this ammunition despite repeated attacks of the enemy and the destruction of our strategic reserves.
The phone calls to the Arsenal is not answered.
It is a heavy blow to the defense of Ukraine, which requires extraordinary measures and solutions.
Unfortunately, we are not able to ensure the safety of our stocks of ammunition despite the allocation this year more than $300 million, numerous commissions, inspections, audits and reports.
For the explosion in Svatovo a bunch of innocent people were dismissed. For the explosion in Balakleya, where there was obvious fault of the leadership of the General Staff, no one was punished. Today, with a detonation of a fourth warehouse in two years, we lost the strategic one.
Putin has also decided to offer congratulations today.
I hope to God no one died.”
