ROSTOV-ON-DON, June 16 (RIA Novosti) — Unexploded land mines of Ukraine's armed forces have been found on the territory of Russia's Rostov region one kilometer away from the Ukraine-Russia border, a representative of Russian Federal Security Services at the Rostov border told RIA Novosti Monday.
"On Sunday, June 15, after Ukrainian military used artillery in Ukrainian border towns, the residents of Russian Primussky village discovered three unexploded land mines, which clearly entered the territory from Ukraine, and they do not resemble the mines of the time of the [second world] war," he said.
The police has roped off the area with the mines.
Since mid-April, Kiev authorities have been conducting a special military operation in the east of the country to suppress the independence movement. The violence intensified after the People’s Republics of Luhansk and Donetsk declared their independence from Ukraine in May.
Moscow has called for an immediate stop to this punitive operation, which has already led to dozens of casualties.
