Workers of the SBU, Ukraine’s state security service found Russian-made ammunition in Donetsk region, eastern Ukraine. According to the press department of the law enforcement agency, the SBU found a PMN-2, the anti-personnel mine.
The item was discovered near Taramchuk village. The pyrotechnical team successfully disposed of the explosive device.
One of the international conventions says it is prohibited to use, accumulate and store such kind of ammunition. Abiding by the convention, Ukraine destroyed all such mines on its territory in 2012.
Another SBU unit found fins of an 82 mm mine near Maryinka. Having considered the ‘76-6-93’ marking on the shell, experts surmised that the mine could have been fired by Russian regular army.
