20,000 people have been evacuated for fear of artillery ammunition flying astray, after a military arsenal depot containing an entire 138,000 tons of ammunition went up in flames.
Over 1,000 government troops are assisting firefighters who are trying to gain control of a fire that rages at a large ammunition depot in Ukraine.
The explosive fire at the military facility in Balakliia, which reportedly contained an entire 138,000 tons of ammunition, erupted on Thursday.
Eyewitnesses said they heard the sound of something that might have been a drone just before the first explosions, and the authorities in Kiev claims that the military arsenal depot went up flames as a result of a Russian sabotage.
Around 20,000 people in the Kharkiv region in eastern Ukraine have been evacuated from their homes for fear that they will be hit by artillery ammunition flying astray.
