Military intelligence officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have discovered a hidden cache of weapons and explosive devices near the village of Orel, in the Mariupol region, that were probably intended for terrorist activities in the area, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense reports on its website, September 14.

The cache contained 4 kilograms of TNT, anti-tank grenades, grenade launchers, thermobaric explosives, and various detonators, and was probably created recently, intelligence officials report. Furthermore, they believe the particular explosive substances included suggest they were to be used for a bomb to blow up a passenger bus.

According to the Ministry of Defense, it is “noteworthy that all the ammunition and equipment were packaged in Russian white ‘humanitarian’ bags and secured with special tape labeled ‘Assistance fund for Novorossia.’ ”

“One again we can see that instead of the proclaimed food products in white trucks, they are bringing weapons and ammunitions to Ukraine whose purpose is to kill Ukrainian civilians, destroy the infrastructure of our country, and bring horror into the life of the Donbas,” the ministry’s report concludes.
