In 2021, specialists from the demining groups of the army corps of the Eastern Military District (VVO) on Sakhalin neutralized more than 40 ammunition and various explosive objects from the Great Patriotic War.

Every year in the island region, the search engines of the Sakhalin regional branch of the “Search Movement of Russia” find many different explosive objects and ammunition, reminiscent of the bloody battles that took place on Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands more than 75 years ago.

Last year, search engines found the bodies of Soviet soldiers, next to which there were unexploded ordnance. For the safe extraction and destruction of ammunition, specialists from the demining group of the army corps of the Air Defense Forces went to the places of the finds.

Over the past year, the demining team destroyed more than 40 explosive items from the Second World War. At the places of the finds, military engineers removed from the ground aviation, mortar and artillery shells, as well as several hand grenades from the Second World War.

The ammunition, which did not pose a danger, was transferred to the exposition of the Sakhalin Museum of Local Lore, as well as to the museum of the motorized rifle unit of the army corps of the Air Defense Forces.
