U.S. Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker said when answering a question of a Voice of America correspondent, Censor.NET reports.
We do not know all circumstances, Volker said. Many are interested in these explosions, but there also exists a significant probability that it was an accident, he said.
The U.S. envoy said the decision of Washington to provide the weapons will be based on the U.S. goals in this matter.
