A whole arsenal of ammunition was raised from the seabed by the Sevastopol employees of the Russian Emergencies Ministry. On July 8, divers of the Specialized Detachment of the Emergency Department of Sevastopol held the next stage of activities in the Gilzovaya Bay. The result was the discovery of 511 explosive objects from the times of the Great Patriotic War.

“In general, to date, 832 explosive objects have been raised from the bottom of the Gilzovaya Bay. Work in this bay – at a potentially dangerous facility in the Black Sea water area – has been underway since May 20. At first, our Special Detachment held events there together with Tsentrospas. Now the Sevastopol fireworks of the Ministry of Emergency Situations continue them on their own, “- said the deputy head of the Specialized Unit of the Main Directorate of the Russian Emergencies Ministry for the city of Sevastopol, Major of the Internal Service Arsen Smailov.

The ammunition raised from the bottom, in compliance with all safety measures, was delivered to the shore, where they were loaded on board with special equipment and transported to the EMERCOM of Russia training ground. On the same day, with the involvement of units of the Black Sea Fleet, all 511 formidable finds were simultaneously destroyed. The largest of the eliminated items was an artillery shell with a caliber of 180 millimeters.

All events took place as usual. No damage was done to the population and infrastructure.
