Invading Russian forces are more and more often storing ammunition in trucks in Luhansk Oblast amid fears to form depots after accurate strikes by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Luhansk Regional Governor Serhiy Hayday reported on the Telegram messenger on Nov. 9.
According to the official, several such vehicles with ammunition were spotted in the occupied town of Alchevsk.
“Russians are more and more often storing ammunition in trucks, as they are afraid to form depots,” Hayday said.
“In particular, residents of Alchevsk spotted many such vehicles. Ammunition from them is loaded into smaller vehicles at night for quick delivery to the front.”
The governor added there are also cases of weapons disappearing. The last such incident took place in the occupied town of Antratsyt, where mobilized soldiers stole weapons during training and escaped. The soldiers were found hiding in a mine only after two days.
The Ukrainian military has been hitting enemy supply points and ammunition depots since the beginning of summer.
In particular, Ukrainian marines destroyed two Russian ammunition depots on Oct. 18.
There are often reports of the detonation of Russian ammunition depots in the east and south of Ukraine, as well as in the Russian border regions.
