MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –

Military engineers of the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District (ZVO) carried out work to destroy ice on the Inevka River in the Moscow Region to protect settlements from floods.

Experts performed several point blasting of ice to eliminate the resulting blockage at the bend of the river three meters high and 250 to 400 meters wide, using about 200 kg of explosives. A total of about a kilometer long riverbed was cleared.

To carry out flood control measures in 2021, more than 10 subversive teams were formed in the Guards Tank Army of the Western Military District, staffed with contract servicemen from among the engineering and sapper divisions of the association.
