Russian soldiers planted mines in beds that were used in kindergartens in Kharkiv before their withdrawal from the capital of that Ukrainian region, as reported on Friday (18) by the regional governor Oleg Sinigubov.
Highlighting the seriousness of the situation, the regional authority said on its Telegram account that “the passengers are using the latest military means and weapons that are not detected by metal detectors.”
Ukraine’s Interior Ministry has deemed Kharkiv the “most explosives-ridden region,” with sappers defuse between 200 and 1,000 a day, according to a report in local newspapers.
According to Sengubov, the Russians used both manually and remotely activated mines. When we finished off the enemy in one settlement or another, we found mined children’s beds in kindergartens. The private sector also remains dangerous.
According to the governor, “Civilians and workers in agricultural companies and emergency medical services are exposed almost every day to the explosion of mines and unexploded ordnance by their occupants.”
Mine clearance specialists were also affected by the explosions, according to the Kharkiv regional authority.
