Russian sappers carried out engineering reconnaissance and clearing the area of explosive objects in the area of the village of Kamenka, Izyumsky district, Kharkiv region. This was reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense.
According to the military department, this measure became necessary, because before the retreat, the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine mined the streets and roads in the vicinity of the village of Kamenka.
According to the press service of the Defense Ministry, during the humanitarian demining, Russian sappers found artillery and tank shells, anti-personnel and anti-tank mines, including foreign-made ones.
