Ammo dump blew up spectacularly, hmm time to think about basic safety standards and training. Planes on the tarmac got damaged with some home-made UAVs dropping explosives - yes, time to think about a roof over their heads. Modern day Russia in a nutshell.
All very valid criticisms, but I would say a human problem rather than just blaming Russia.
The ironic thing is, if they start sending government inspectors around the country to clamp down hard on every violation, I'm willing to bet people will be complaining about how authoritarian and bureaucratic the government is
