The rescuers could not use aircraft to extinguish a fire at an ammunition depot in Balakleya of Kharkov region, therefore, involved fire tanks. The journalists said the Deputy head of the Department of emergency response Peter Korotynsky, write “Ukrainian news”.

“Aviation cannot be applied in this situation. Ammo explode and scatter, the range of the spread is 0.5-1 km away, where firefighters used tanks from the Ministry of defence, there is a special team that has armored vehicles that can go in there and carry out the necessary work,” he said.

Thus, the SES could not predict when will the elimination of fire.
