In the footsteps of the explosion in Beirut: 10 thousand tons of saltpeter found in the port of Odessa

According to sources, about 10 thousand tons of expired ammonium nitrate is stored in the Odessa port "Yuzhny". This is approximately three times more than exploded the day before in Beirut.

Odessa media outlets indicated that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been informed of the situation and the necessary measures will be taken soon.

Meanwhile, Odessa is not the only city in Ukraine where stocks of ammonium nitrate are neglected. There are about 3,2 thousand tons of this explosive in the port of Nikolaev - this was reported by the media, referring to the former chief prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoly Matius. According to the ex-prosecutor, two years ago the ship "Tulza" entered the port, carrying ammonium nitrate on board - later the cargo was arrested.

The ship "Tulza" sails under the flag of Cook Island. The seized cargo is ammonium nitrate with a volume of about 3,2355 thousand tons of Kazakhstani production. The goods must be delivered to the warehouses of Alet Trading LLC, however, it is still located on the territory of the port pier in Nikolaev.

In Beirut, during the welding work on August 4, an explosion of 2,7 thousand tons of ammonium nitrate occurred, as a result of which 137 people were killed, about 5 thousand city residents were injured, and dozens of people are reported missing.

    Interestingly, but in any other famous countries, nothing like this happens? And then all the author's concern is again about Ukraine. It's a shame.
  3. If the Ukrainians run wild, they will blame Putin and Russia as a whole.

        Once you remember, you need to answer. In misfortune, others are happy, that is, they will pay attention and remove a dangerous accumulation of explosive cargo from the beautiful and iconic city of Odessa, and not only, here and Nikolaev, and others ... Ammonium nitrate is made different, for explosives one, for fertilizers: and fine, and coarse-grained, from the 90s they are made with a coating, that is, explosion-proof ... Which one in Odessa, is determined by suppliers and labeling ... In Beirut there was an explosive crystallizing for the manufacture, very explosive, after caking, the explosion hazard and the reaction power increases .. Appearances: Manufacturer of nitrate for explosives, chemical plant in Rustavi, names and addresses of owners of raw materials for explosives in the commercial department of the chemical plant Rustavi, Georgia (Sakartvelo) ...
        1. Thank you, comprehensively, competently, yes! But! All the same, VLADIMIR PUTIN is to blame for everything! Putin, and only him!

    Yuzhny is located 35 km from Odessa. In the same place in Yuzhnoye, there is its own large port and the most powerful Port Plant, which produces this ammonium nitrate from ammonia, which comes from Togliatti (Russia) through an ammonia pipeline.

      which is supplied through the ammonia pipeline from Togliatti (Russia)

      Again, the Russian trace, well, what are you going to do - after all, ammonia is specially supplied there, because they know that the saltpeter made from it will burst sooner or later. lol For "balance" it would also be necessary to point to the American footprint:

      The Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline was built in the late 70s specifically for the transportation of the main products of the Togliatti nitrogen plant (today Togliattiazot OJSC) for export... USSR enterprise and pipeline the Americans helped build
