    Everything happens in war. But here it is very likely that someone has not fully fulfilled their official duties. Well, the test results will show everyone’s guilt.
    On my own behalf, I want to wish a speedy and complete recovery to all the victims of this explosion.

    The enemy is cruel and treacherous ... a little relaxed ... lost a sense of danger and retribution comes without fail.
    A lot of people died because of this.
    Of course, the demolition must be sought through the informant who gave him the coordinates of the journalist’s movement ... this is already a matter of counterintelligence and various security services.

    Lucky we could have been left without legs at all ... We need to be more careful ... I hope that conclusions will be drawn from this error so that the same does not happen in the future ...

    Sadness. But either they didn’t drown it out and the signal passed, or they simply missed a landmine. As far as I remember, journalists are allowed only where they have already checked. Well, or the words about "radio-controlled" are just a figure of speech.
    And of course, a speedy recovery.

    There is no fault of our military there. There is a proverb-Knowing where you fall ....... You won’t take it into account. It is more known that the militants were trained by all the special services of the world, and they led them. Demoman there are pros. The more war not yet finished, and goes into a partisan subversive. Thank God. We got off easily, which means that some kind of set of measures still saved them.
