Military prosecutors say the strength of the guard of the ammunition depot outside Kalynivka, Vinnytsia region, was insufficient.

Deputy Prosecutor General / Chief Military Prosecutor Anatolii Matios announced this at a news briefing, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"At the moment of the start of explosions the ammunition depot was guarded by several air-defense posts foreseen by the regulations and 17 employees of the paramilitary unit of guard. In the opinion of the preliminary investigation the number of men involved in the guard of the ammunition depot did not match the amount of ammunition stored there, possible consequences and capacities for providing proper protection," he said.

He says paramilitary units of guard usually comprise elderly employees because of low wages and low motivation.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the fire at the ammunition depot began on September 26 at about 10 p.m.
