Why blow up ammo depots when their own equipment uses the same ammo?
Doesn't make sense.
Resistance by the Tartars?
Naw. Not a chance.

Maybe they blew up their own depots so the Russians couldn’t use it. Makes more sense.
Maybe that new leader is trying to instigate something.

“Why blow up ammo depots when their own equipment uses the same ammo?”
If you can’t safely move it and you don’t want to defend where it is, you destroy it.
And that’s how the little instigator got to be the “illicit” leader.
Less than $2.7k to go!!
