A bomb from the times of the Great Patriotic War (WWII) was found at the construction site of a new house of the Kit RC in Mytishchi. The ammunition turned out to be “with a secret,” said Artem Eranov, general director of SZ Invest Group LLC, on Friday, September 11.
According to him, on August 24, an excavator, while developing a pit, found a device that looked like an ammunition. The leaders called the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Emergency Situations.
“The construction was immediately stopped, all city services were called,” Eranov quotes the “360” TV channel.
Eranov noted that all services worked quickly, within 5-10 minutes. The site was cordoned off. It was only necessary to wait for the sappers who were traveling from the neighboring area.
The emergency services who arrived at the scene also mistook the item for an explosive shell. The sappers loaded the ammunition into the car and covered the sarcophagus for safety.
After the diagnostics, the sappers said that the bomb could not detonate. “As we were later told, it was a kind of shell from a large explosive device, but there was nothing inside, neither the fuse, nor the explosive itself,” he said.
According to Glavgosstroynadzor of the Moscow Region, the item was taken from the construction site for disposal, writes RIAMO.
On August 25, it was reported that the explosives technicians of the Mosoblpozhspas Moscow Oblast Department of Defense defused a 50-mm mortar mine from the Second World War in the Lotoshino urban district in the Moscow region.
