Divers of the 187th Inter-Service Training Center of Engineering Troops will jointly begin diving into the wet moat of the Baltic fortress “Pillau” in order to search for military artifacts.

During the work, there is a likelihood of finding unexploded ordnance during the Great Patriotic War, in connection with which sappers-divers use modern search tools to ensure safety.

For the first time, divers will use the latest MIV-3 engineering diving mine detector, as well as the PPO-2I selective mine detector, the IMP-3 induction mine detector, the MBI-P2 magnetometric bomb detector, and the MG-1I deep metal detector.

The wet moat of the Baltic Fortress, located on the coast of the Baltic Sea, is 1400 meters long and about 45 meters wide.

The Baltic fortress was built in the 17th century. Throughout its centuries-old history, it has withstood many sieges and assaults. On April 26, 1945, the German garrison of the fortress fell under the onslaught of the Red Army. The Pillau fortress (Baltic fortress) became the last bastion of the Nazis, with the capture of which the entire East Prussian operation ended.
