Military engineers of the Central Military District are preparing for floods on rivers in the Republic of Udmurtia.

In the course of special training, the servicemen of a separate engineering regiment worked out the issues of protecting structures and bridges from ice drift during spring floods. They studied safety rules for blasting operations on ice, learned how to calculate explosives, and make various types of charges.

In practical exercises, the personnel of the demolition team identified the most congested area of ​​the reservoir, measured the thickness of the ice, drilled holes, set charges and carried out blasting operations. About 25 kg of TNT was used to eliminate the ice blockage.
