Russia: The fire in the shopping center was caused by an ammunition explosion
Russia’s defense ministry said the fire at the Kremenchuk shopping mall was caused by an “explosion of ammunition stored for Western weapons”, but no evidence was offered to support the claim, Reuters reports.
In the daily conference, the ministry said: “The armed forces of the Russian Federation continue to strike military facilities on the territory of Ukraine. On June 27, in the city of Kremenchuk, Russian airspace forces carried out an attack with high-precision air-based weapons on hangars with weapons and ammunition obtained from the United States and European countries. As a result of a high-precision attack, Western-made weapons and ammunition concentrated in a storage area for further deployment to the Ukrainian troop group in the Donbas were hit. “The explosion of ammunition stored for Western weapons caused a fire in a non-functional shopping center near the plant.”
