The demining group of a special purpose unit of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in the Rostov region, destroyed the ammunition of the Great Patriotic War, found in the Suvorovsky microdistrict of Rostov-on-Don.

The application for demining in the compound came through the military commissariat of the Rostov region of the Southern Military District.

The dangerous find was discovered during construction work. The arriving experts of the mine clearance group classified the ammunition as more than 17 artillery high-explosive fragmentation shells of 76-mm caliber during the Great Patriotic War. In addition, not far from the site of the first find, two more wartime ammunition was found – a 152-mm artillery shell and an 82-mm mortar mine.

Dangerous finds were removed and taken to the range of a motorized rifle unit, where they were destroyed by an overhead charge.
