Cloud of ammonia moving towards positions of Ukrainian troops


First Deputy Minister of Information of the Donetsk People's Republic Daniil Bezsonov showed the video of an ammonia cloud that appeared after the Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline near the settlement of Kupyansk in the Kharkiv region.

"This is an exclusive footage of the section of the ammonia pipeline that the Ukrainians blew up in the Kupyansky area,” Bezsonov wrote on Telegram channel.

The video depicts a large white cloud over a wooded area.

Military correspondent Alexander Kharchenko said on Telegram that the cloud of ammonia was moving towards the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It was decided to postpone the offensive of the Ukrainian army on the indicated sector of the front, he added.
