    I just saw this video today. Surprised the national news didn't even have a story on it. Two days ago a massive explosion at Ukrainian military weapons depot.
    Did anyone hear about this?

    I didn't hear about it until today. I guess that's one way to clear out a stock pile of weapons and rockets!

    I'm no expert on military weapons, but I'm guessing that's not supposed to happen on base.

    I'm sure it's just a big empty crater were a base used to be.

    Now the real question was it a pro-Russian depot, or a Ukrainian one?

    You know Ukraine isn't Russia right? It's important to me that you know that :D

    As we use to say in my USAF days, if that place gets hit..Boom Boom out go the lights, the last thing anyone will see if they are close is the flash. They are hot targets for bad actors.

    Thanks for asking. They are in Uzhgorod which is about ~240 miles from the blast. I haven't spoken to them in a few days, due to check in this weekend.
    Any contact? I bet you get to hear more details than I will :)
