The servicemen of the Russian National Guard Troops discovered and destroyed about 640 PFM-1C "Petal" anti-personnel high-explosive mines in the Kharkov region. These mines could cause irreparable harm not only to the military personnel, but also to the civilians.
The Rosguard personnel revealed another war crime of the Ukrainian nationalists. Using the «Uragan» multiple launch rocket system, the radicals carried out remote mining of the area near the civilian settlements.
The PFM-1C antipersonnel high-explosive mine, which weighs only 80 grams, often does not kill, but cripples a person. The small size of the mine complicates its search, especially in dense grass areas. The Rosguard sappers demonstrate high professionalism to disarm the mines of that type.
At the same time, one of Rosguard engeneering units disarmed more than 200 explosive devices in the Kharkov region in a month. The successful actions of the Rosguard engineers made it possible to save hundreds of civilian lives in the liberated territories.
