Second World War Mines Found In Stavropol

An 82mm mine that lay dormant since the Second World War was blown up on a new gardening plot close to the Southern Circular Road outside Stavropol ( Territory is located in South Russia, in the foothills of the Caucasus) on May 2. One of the gardeners found it quite by chance. Igor Pogosov, head of the information department of the main interior department of the Stavropol Territory, said the mine was rusted through and hence could not be moved, which is why it was blown up where it was found, but all proper security measures were taken. According to Pogosov, a similar mine was found and rendered harmless in the region several days before.
