Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense is reporting that militants in Kramatorsk are inserting boxes with unknown contents into sewer holes. The Ministry has determined there are substantial grounds for believing this could be an explosive substance, 25 tons of which was stolen Monday, May 5, in the area of Kramatorsk, according to the Ministry’s Facebook statement, May 6.
“Given the unprincipled, immoral, and absolute disregard for Ukrainian and international law that characterizes the destructive activities of the separatists, it is clear they are capable of any cynical crime against the innocent residents of the city,” the Ministry states.
“Therefore, once again we appeal to the residents of the eastern regions of Ukraine with a request to be cautious, discreet, peaceful and observant. Protect and take care of yourselves, because our army is the entire Ukrainian nation!” the statement concludes.
