As a rule, there may be unexploded shells near such equipment. The basis of our task is the detection of explosive and technical means and their subsequent disposal, so that it does not harm any of the people.

More than 3 dozen anti-vehicle ammunition, a dozen anti-personnel, petal mines, OZM – a mine that jumps a meter and leaves nothing alive around it within a radius of 25 meters. You have to carefully examine everything, constantly pierce the ground with a probe.

The device for finding explosives may not react – the attackers use plastic mines that the device does not see. Therefore, one can only hope for one’s own attentiveness.

Due to the fact that it is plastic, it is difficult to detect, we find them with a probe, because. You can’t find everything with a metal detector. You have to look under your feet. The Russians also use booby traps, make all sorts of surprises, tricks to complicate the work of the sapper. Maybe a replacement grenade, maybe a mine, maybe standard engineering ammunition ML8, MS3. They use different ones. There may be stretch marks, there are minefields, they combine anti-tank mines with anti-personnel mines. I already had losses in the group because of this. On the same mine, he bounces, then explodes.

In those villages where the sappers have already finished their work, people are trying to save at least something from the destroyed houses. Patients’ cards must be removed from the premises of the Prudyansk Outpatient Clinic.

I took the initiative, now I will take out at least a few cards. We had 2 family doctors here, a dentist, a gynecologist came. Here manipulation, droppers were placed, they helped as much as they could. When our soldiers entered the village to free Tsupovka, the orcs also began to work on us. The first flights arrived on March 30.
