Looks like Ukrainians maybe blowing up fuel depots.

There was a huge serie of explosions on the outskirts of Kyiv at a military airport installation.

You can see that on the clips CNN showed. Some experts are saying it could be deliberate to deny Russians from fuel for their tanks. It would be a smart move, cut their supply lines and they will fail. Napoleon ran into this issue fighting Russia of all places..

4. Or like with gas and oil pipelines, it's what you get with indiscriminate shelling.

Shells falls randomly. Some will hit fuel depots, some will hit trees and flower beds, some will hit roads and places that make varenniki, some will orphanages and retirement cents, and some will gas pipelines or post offices.

It's why random, indiscriminate shelling is a bad, bad, bad thing.

Likely destroying resource before it falls into enemy hands, but in the choice between "this was an act of virtue by the good guys" and "this was an act of depravity by the bad guys..." tough choice.

War. Fog.
