    The entire water area of ​​the Baltic Sea is a continuous dump of various types of ammunition. After the Second World War, ammunition filled with toxic substances was also drowned there. Now, the terms of corrosion of their shells are just approaching the limit. So, there will be a lot of such fireworks, and even with "pepper".

    How many years have passed, and how much more iron and earth has been in the earth and water since that war. And somewhere in the Black Sea, terribly yearning for an American destroyer a lone sea mine ...

      During each naval maneuver with the participation of Latvian minesweepers, several ammunition left over from that war is found and destroyed. Unfortunately, there is too much of this "good" in the sea. sad

    I hope this is a hint that a mine from the time of the Second World War can surface under any NATO ship, and even in the Black Sea!

    He once served in the Pioneer. In place of our unit is now a government residence. Apparently, they found it near her, and so they blew him away from sin.

      Exactly. A couple of years ago, a whole barge of artillery shells was evacuated from there, with their hands each shell. The work is still that! But in Zelenogradsk they don’t touch the same barge.

    If such a mine pops up through the trough of NATO, then the stench will be more than from chemical weapons. And it's not a pity at all. These bombs were prepared by our enemies for our fathers and grandfathers, and it would not be a big sin if they "overwhelm" their sons.
