In 2021, fireworkers of the Russian Emergencies Ministry discovered and defused more than 1.4 thousand aerial bombs during the Great Patriotic War.

At the request of citizens, organizations and institutions, pyrotechnic crews of the EMERCOM of Russia made more than 800 trips. At the same time, over 3.2 thousand explosive objects were discovered and neutralized.

The pyrotechnics of the EMERCOM of Russia annually carry out work to clear water areas and territories from explosive objects throughout the country, as well as within the framework of humanitarian demining of military conflict zones. Thus, last year, the fireworks of the Russian Emergencies Ministry took part in the demining of the territories of Nagorno-Karabakh, the Republic of South Ossetia and other foreign states.

Currently, there are about 240 pyrotechnists in the department. In the winter and spring seasons, the pyrotechnic divisions of the Russian Emergencies Ministry are involved in special blasting operations when blasting ice jams, as well as crushing oversized stone formations caused by mudflows.
