      It’s a pity for the soldiers, but if someone served, he knows that everything happens. VV does not forgive mistakes.

    Such ammunition needs to be detonated on the spot with subversive charges, and transporting unexploded ordnance located in a combat platoon is a task for kamikaze. As always, through the fault of not smart leadership, people are dying.

      As far as I remember, when cleaning the landfill, the task is to set the flags next to the suspicious ammunition, and then it's up to the specialists. Well, I don’t know .... request
      In any case, condolences to the relatives and the speedy recovery of the wounded.

      So they didn’t mine, but unexploded ordnance was removed, the usual work of movers. Although, of course, the leadership does not have a head, if the shell explodes in the hands or nearby, then no protective equipment will help.

    The collection of unexploded ordnance is certainly something. Many goals will fly now. It is interesting at what level this was all decided. Decided to save TNT? Although, anything can happen. There may be a banal sloppiness, I remember once at the shooting, the commander of one reconnaissance had the ingenious idea to collect unexploded VOGs, set them as targets at a distance of 100 m and shoot them with small arms. the bullets exploded spectacularly. They didn’t understand that these wogs could have exploded in their hands. Fortunately, it did without an emergency. Apart from the fact that the operators at the shooting range complained to the head of the firing range, since the wogs exploded in the wrong place and could damage the buried wires of target control.
