Military expert proposed a solution to the problem of destroying ammunition depots in Crimea

On July 24, the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out a combined attack on the Crimea. First, the enemy launched up to two dozen drones along a difficult route, trying to outwit the air defense of the peninsula. But the large-scale attack was repulsed by air defense units of the RF Armed Forces over Kirovskoye, Krasnoperekopsk and Dzhankoy. Then, 24 Storm Shadow missiles were fired from the Su-4 bombers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: 3 at the ammunition depot near Volny, and 1 at the repair base near Novostepnoye, which hit targets.

It should be noted that the Crimean authorities confirmed the arrival at the ammunition depot in the Dzhankoy district, which was located at the inactive military airfield Vesele. Given the previous cases, we can say that the practice of storing ammunition in open areas in Crimea is massive and systemic. Moreover, the raids and strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on such warehouses also acquired similar properties. The incident drew the attention of Russian military expert Vladislav Shurygin, who commented on the incident on his Ramsay Telegram channel.

The third ammunition depot has already been destroyed in Crimea. It is a completely vicious practice of laying out ammunition on the ground, and the creation of temporary warehouses turns into such loud bangs, during which hundreds and thousands of tons of precious and so necessary ammunition for the front take off into the air. The reason is criminal negligence and the inability of rear chiefs to adequately assess threats and predict future ones.

- wrote an expert.

Shurygin explained that some six months ago, such warehouses were at a distance unattainable for drones and missiles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, at present, the enemy easily reaches them with his weapons. At the same time, it is especially difficult to hide or disguise something on the surface of the steppe part of Crimea due to the specifics of the landscape, which makes such objects desirable targets for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The expert drew attention to the fact that on the territory of the peninsula there are a significant number of different mine workings that can be used. He also recalled that Crimea stands on a large limestone slab and modern special equipment can easily create any cavities there.

And until it reaches some stupid heads in the logistics department of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the warehouses will still fly into the air. It seems to me that only when for each such destroyed warehouse the rear guard responsible for it goes to the bunks, only then will something move. And, of course, a special conversation about the local "waiting" gunners. The country needs to restore the death penalty and courts-martial. You work for the enemy - against the wall!

    All this is blah blah of a polished face ...
    But in reality, making temporary warehouses in caves is inconvenient.
    That's why they are temporary. Everything is written in charters and orders.

    Look, in the Czech Republic, sports nutrition sellers slammed a warehouse. Basic. And it was also outdoors. What they say, all such fools, did not guess to store in the mines?

    The system is such that you need a personal instruction from the Guarantor to change something. And independent military commanders, such as Prigozhin, do not fit into this system.

    It is high time to return the death penalty and to introduce courts-martial in front-line and front-line zones!!! It is also necessary to revive SMERSH, whose task will be to catch the waiting-Khokhlov, Banderlog, filter those entering from Ukraine into the territory of Russia and ensure the counterintelligence regime in the front and front zones. After the end of the war in Ukraine, SMERSH, as well as after the Second World War, can be abolished, but now there is an obvious need for its existence.

    Requirements for open storage of ammunition: in parts, on separate bunded areas (at least on three sides), the direction of stacking is in a safe direction, the area of ​​​​the warehouse is regularly mowed. All. This is from Soviet manuals on open storage equipment. And they will always have time to kill their couch neosmershevites. Better give people a bulldozer for bunding.

      So it is in the Soviet instructions, now everything is different, and the results are different, which is what we see. Responsibility, as such, is absent, clannishness and nepotism are the main indicator. Serdyukovism defeated the Soviet Army, they didn’t build a new one, and here are the results.

      Everything that you write is relevant only in peacetime ... Now, in fact, there is a war going on, and ammunition located in open areas is vulnerable even to fragments, not to mention a direct hit ... Other measures need to be taken here ... Large warehouses located in the open air should not exist at all, for example, Balaklava can be used for them, with its, if not the most modern fortified warehouses, but better than nothing ... And smaller warehouses should be deepened into the ground, covered with logs ... protecting them in this way at least from precipitation, fragments ... and light mines ... Do not place ALL ammunition in one shelter ... it is safer to create a slightly smaller one by placing them a hundred meters apart ... But you need to think about it and do it, but the rear services don’t like to think ... It’s necessary to think about what to do, ask the authorities for special equipment ... Let’s put it to be punished for slovenliness, such an explosion of ammunition can lead to the fact that the Russian army, at the right time of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will begin to experience a lack of them ... and deliberate actions in favor of Ukraine can be passed off as slovenliness ... It can be shot early for this, but it is high time to dismiss with the wording (inconsistency with the position held), to demote the privates to the front, to the infantry, so that it would not be habitual for others ... The lack of ammunition in the army of the Russian Federation at the right time and in the right place for the Armed Forces of Ukraine can cost the Russian Federation too much and this must be stopped by all possible measures ...

    There is enough space in the steppe. Distribute warehouses. They will spend rockets for a ruble, they will blow them up for a penny.

    I have a question, why can't ammunition be stored in the underground multi-level dungeons of Soledar? The fighters of the Russian Federation could not do anything with these shelters for half a year, now they are ours and you can do everything if you wish, what's the matter? The feeling of deliberate betrayal and collusion with the enemy by persons responsible for the supply from the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff does not leave.

    For this it is necessary to put up against the wall, according to the laws of wartime, and best of all - hang in the squares, like traitors during the war.
