Explosions are heard at Ukraine’s biggest munitions depot in the village of Kalinovka near the city of Vinnitsa, a police spokesman said on Tuesday according to TASS.

“The police received a telephone call about the sounds of explosions at about 22:00 local time,” National Police Spokesman Yaroslav Trakalo told Ukrainskaya Pravda. 

“Later, it was established that artillery shells are exploding at an army unit. Now, law enforcers jointly with rescuers are evacuating people from neighboring villages,” the spokesman continued.

The Kalinovka munitions depot holds 188,000 tonnes on munitions, including missiles for Smerch and Uragan multiple missile launcher systems, on an area of 60 hectares, TASS explained.
