– We neutralized the minefields laid by the Ukrainians – said the commander of the department of the engineering group. – We destroy anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, mines installed in grooves.
Instead of spare magazines, wire cutters, cunning wrenches and other tools necessary for his dangerous business are placed in the sapper’s chest.
Anti-tank mines are pulled out of their place by a “cat” on a long rope, hiding behind a tree; sometimes they are set so that they cannot be removed.
The sapper cuts the thin, almost invisible wires that reach the “stretched” mine, holding the fuse, so that it does not move.
– German mines lie, we also deal with them, – we will continue with the army.
Deactivated ammunition is destroyed on the spot, by the detonation method.
