WNU Editor: This was a massive explosion. My aunt lives in Kharliv, and she told my mother this morning that from where she is living (about 20km away) she could see the glow in the distance last night. I know this region quite well. There are a lot of Russian-Ukrainians living in this region, and they have no love to the central government in Kiev. The Ukrainian government is blaming Russia for this blast .... but I am willing to wager that if it was sabotage, it came from someone (or someones) who are local.
