Thousands Evacuated In Ukraine After Ammunition Explosions

More than 30,000 residents were evacuated from the area near a Ukranian military base Wednesday after ammunition explosions sent a plume of fire and smoke into the air, officials said.

The fire broke out late Tuesday in the town of Kalynivka, 120 miles southwest of the capital, Kiev, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. The warehouse stores multiple rocket launcher systems.

More than 30,000 people were bused out of the area and electricity and gas were turned off in the area as a precaution. Four residential buildings were damaged by fire but no casualties have been reported.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who arrived in the area early Wednesday, said the situation was under control during an interview on local television. The cause of the fire was under investigation.


Ammuniton From Wideners

If you’ve not yet had the pleasure of ordering from Widener’s Reloading & Shooting Supply, I encourage you to look them up. The process is as simple as ordering from Amazon. I selected a few different options: one for handgun and one for shotgun.

Browning BXP Personal Defense Ammunition 9mm Luger 147 Grain X-Point

Hevi-Shot Maximum Defense Ammunition 12 Gauge 2-3/4″ 1 oz T Shot

I ordered 3 boxes of the Browning BXP and 4 boxes of the Hevi-Shot. Process was as simple as selecting the product, adding to chart, and then checking out. A few days later the ammunition arrived right to my door.
