In the Moscow region, sappers of the Taman motorized rifle division of the guards tank of the Western Military District seized, transported and destroyed ammunition from the Great Patriotic War, found in a field near the village of Trufanovka, Odintsovo urban district.

Local residents, who discovered a strange object in the field, asked for help. The place of the dangerous find was cordoned off by police officers. The demining group of a separate engineer-sapper battalion of the Taman division of the Western Military District in Sokol protective suits arrived to an urgent call. Experts identified the explosive object as a German mine of the Great Patriotic War.

The dangerous object was pulled out of the ground with the help of a “cat” hook. The mines were transported to the landfill in a special hood for the transport of explosive goods. Using a 200-gram TNT block, the sappers destroyed the ammunition in an explosive manner on the territory of the Alabino test site. About 10 specialists of the Taman Division of the Western Military District were involved in the special operation.
