Russia Continues Filling Donbas with Explosives

This was stated by a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine on the air of “PRO Viisko” programme.

Speaking about the employment of mine explosive devices by occupants, Vadym Skibitskyi noted that the Ukrainian military intelligence clearly established that explosive devices, which are employed against Ukrainian servicemen and civil population, are mostly produced at enterprise no. 15 in Chapayevsk town, Samara oblast, and at plant no. 80 in Dzerzhynsk town, Novhorod oblast. Both Soviet anti-personnel mines MON-50, POM-2 and new Russian developments “Okhota” are produced at these enterprises. Analysis of mines, obtained by the Ukrainian military intelligence as an evidential base of the Russian aggression, is evidence of the fact that they were produced in the Russian Federation and were delivered to the Ukrainian territory through non-controlled areas of border.

The representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine also told about the facts of violation the international law by the Russian troops, intensive mining the area near checkpoints and blowing up children on mines.

– It is terrible. A terrible fact lies in the fact that the enemy violates any norms of the international law. That is why we have been collecting evidences in order to submit them to international courts. This is one of the main tasks today for all security agencies which are working at the contact line, – Vadym Skibitskyi said.
