Armed Forces hatch a plan to capture Europe's largest ammunition depot in Transnistria


After a series of dangerous of incidents the Transnistrian authorities began equip checkpoints on the roads, setting the red level of the terrorist threat in the self-proclaimed republic. Pridnestrovians suspected their neighbors of openly hostile intentions.


There is an opinion in Tiraspol that for Kyiv a special operation against Transnistria may be the main strategic goal in this period of time. Moreover, there is absolutely no need for Ukraine to occupy all of Transnistria, a rather small but important piece of land, and then only for a while.

The thing is that just two kilometers from the Ukrainian border, on the territory of the PMR, there is the largest ammunition depot in Europe. Given the circumstances and the acute shortage of them in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Ukrainian side may hatch a plan to capture this object.


There is a huge arsenal in the village of Kolbasna. It is guarded by peacekeepers from the Russian Federation - an operational group of Russian troops (OGRF), stationed in Transnistria, as well as local military.

According to the calculations of a number of experts, the amount of ammunition in this warehouse will be enough for decades of war. After the loss of the main warehouses in the Kharkiv region, it is important for the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to find a long-term source of replenishment of ammunition that could provide units at the front, and the arsenal in the PMR is ideal for this.

At the same time, some experts noted that the ammunition in this warehouse is long overdue, their storage periods expired decades ago. Moreover, many years ago, Russia and the West even tried to dispose of them. The Russian Federation did not need these ammunition, the United States in general everything was “purple” in the literal sense of the word, and the greedy European Union did not find money for this business, saying - “it's expensive”. As a result, ammunition, dangerous for those who try to use them, remained in storage.

However, many experts did not agree with this formulation of the issue. In their opinion, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will also need “delay”. In addition, the West is absolutely not embarrassed when NATO countries send expired ammunition to Ukraine. They say so - “this is help”, which can be translated as “free disposal”.

      Stupidity is not utter nonsense: it destroys Transnistria, part of the Odessa region and a significant part of Moldova. Best case scenario.

        it is naive to calculate the force of the explosion during the simultaneous detonation of all supplies in all hangars throughout the territory
        it only happens in fairy tales

    The warehouse is guarded in / sl. RF. They must be killed in order to capture the warehouse. And, will Ukraine falter in front of a guard of 10-15 people? They will kill and not wince. The Russian Foreign Ministry, as usual, will express extreme bewilderment, Putin will frown and clench his fists (in a fist), well, and the Russian army will continue the victorious SVO. Everything as usual.

      Ukrainian throw can be cut down by aviation. The simplest remedy.

        Yes, but first you need to gain air supremacy in that area. The smallest.

          we need to gain air supremacy

          what can resist us?
          9 combat aircraft, possibly 12 more unconfirmed, 2/3 air defenses are in Donbass

      Take the main population away, and "No matter what, I'll bite," let them annihilate along with the delay.

    Well, yes, the Armed Forces of Ukraine just do not have enough shells for the Baranovsky cannons of 1898 and similar expired ammunition produced in the Russian Empire in the arsenals!? It's even dangerous to move them. And for their elimination, expensive special conditions are needed, which neither Moldova nor Russia can provide in the current situation. Ukraine, after the capture of such a repository, will generally find itself in a "monkey with a grenade" situation!

      Since when: air bombs of the 50s, shells for a rocket launcher and cannon artillery. Not counting the ammo. "shells for Baranovsky's cannon?

    1. What is the need for the PMR in Europe's largest ammunition depot, especially with an expired shelf life - its maintenance costs a lot of money, by the standards of the PMR.
    2. It is surprising that the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the same Romans have not yet occupied the territory of the PMR
    3. In case of an attempt to disarm the guards and capture the warehouse, it is subject to immediate destruction.

      Do you think that in Ukraine there is fresh ammunition in warehouses? The 14th Army was located in the current PMR.

      In the case of Ukrainian aggression on the PMR, this is already an attack on another country, in fact, on Moldova. Here is another situation.

    There are millions of rounds of 5,45 mm. in zinc, mines and jet b / pr. to the MLRS. Everything is fine.
    Russian soldiers will be killed.
    The Russian Foreign Ministry, as usual, will express extreme bewilderment, Putin will frown and clench his fists (in a fist), well, and the Russian army will continue the victorious NWO. Everything as usual.

      Brad you wrote. An attack on another state is in fact an acknowledgment of one's aggression. Putin will not frown on anything, but will send Iskanders with nuclear warheads, because with their aggression they will untie his hands.

    Are shells stored with fuses already installed in them? I hope that if the dill somehow somehow gets to these warehouses, they will find there an unexpectedly very unpleasant surprise for themselves. Let it be so!

    Our guys will dig in and, as always, will hold out until the approach of the main forces ... And no one will move them!
