US representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker says the blasts at ammunition depot in Vinnytsya will not affect the decision to give Ukraine lethal defensive weapons, Voice of America reports Sept. 29.
“We do not know all the details. Many are interested in blasts, and there is a probability that they were accidental. I think the US decision will be based on American goals in this issue,” Volker says.
The final decision is in the pipeline in the White House, military say./
Ukrainian experts assume there are several causes of the blasts - a terrorist attack, negligence and just an accident.
More than a third of the depot has been destroyed, military say.
