Servicemen of the engineer-sapper company of the Southern Military District (YuVO) have begun clearing explosive ordnance (EOM) from agricultural land in Chechnya.

From April 1, demining work will be carried out on more than 300 hectares of agricultural land and forest lands in the Achkhoy-Martanovsky region and on the territory of the Achkhoy-Martanovsky forestry.

The personnel of the sapper units perform tasks in the protective suits of the OVR-2 Sokol sapper. For demining, servicemen use IMR-2 engineering vehicles, and Korshun non-contact explosive device seekers.

Demining groups of the motorized rifle unit of the 58th combined-arms army of the Southern Military District, stationed in Chechnya, as well as the crews of mine-detecting dogs were involved in clearing the area from GPs.

The engineers of the Southern Military District began work on mine clearance and the complete cleaning of the area of ​​Chechnya and Ingushetia from explosives in May 2012.
