MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Employees of the Center for Special Risk Rescue Operations “Leader” of the EMERCOM of Russia completed a large-scale operation to search for and neutralize explosives in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky Administrative Districts of Moscow. In a solemn atmosphere, an act of acceptance and transfer of the cleared territory of the Rogovskoye settlement was signed.
According to the document, a territory with a total area of 40 hectares was cleared and more than 460 explosive objects were neutralized. The destruction was carried out by the pyrotechnic crew of the Center “Leader” under the leadership of Vitaly Oleinikov. During the last neutralization by specialists, about 250 explosive objects were destroyed at a time. The work was carried out at a special landfill in compliance with all safety requirements.
The territory of the Rogovskoye settlement has repeatedly become a point of resistance to the invasion of enemy forces. Not only battles of the Great Patriotic War, but also the battles of the Patriotic War of 1812 took place here. In 1941, fierce battles were fought near the village of Kuzovlevo – the battle for Moscow was going on. Thanks to the steadfastness and heroism of Soviet soldiers, the enemy was stopped and was unable to break through the defense line.
Work on the detection of explosive objects on the territory of TINAO has been carried out since 2013. During this time, the Center’s pyrotechnics surveyed an area of almost 340 hectares and found over 3150 explosive objects.
Until now, the vastness of “New Moscow” contains unexploded ordnance. The deadly finds, which have lain in the ground for decades, have been corroded for a long time. Due to the natural impact on combat fuses, these GPs can detonate at any time. That is why, year after year, the best specialists from the Leader Center are attracted to clean up the territory of the future cultural and historical park. Each rescuer of the Center has vast experience of work not only in Russia, but also abroad.
