Jul 26, 2023

On July 25-26, at least three mines were washed up on the Black Sea coast in Odesa and Mykolaiv regions due to a storm and detonated.

This was reported by the Operational Command "South".

Stormy weather at sea has led to an increase in mine danger.

On Tuesday evening, a mine of an unknown type washed up on the Black Sea coast in Mykolaiv region and spontaneously detonated. The explosion damaged several dozen windows in the buildings of a recreational facility. No people were injured.


On Wednesday morning, two more mines of unknown type spontaneously detonated in the water near a beach in the Odesa region.

OK "South": "The mine danger of the coast and coastal waters is extremely high, exacerbated by the effects of man-made flooding after the Russian occupiers blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station. It brought a lot of explosive objects into the sea.

In addition, the enemy's provocative behavior in the Black Sea may lead to an additional increase in mines.
