LPR and Russian engineers render safe 30,000 UXO since February


LPR Emergencies Ministry and Russia's EMERCOM engineers have rendered safe more than 30,000 explosive ordnance since February, the ministry said.

"Since February 24, engineers responded to 862 calls and reports and examines 1,929 ha of territory, and deactivated 30,000 UXO," the report reads.

An Uran-6 mine-clearing robot is used in the operation.

The robot can clear a 6-meter wide passage in a minefield, enough for vehicles and crawled-mounted equipment to pass through. It is remotely controlled from a distance of 50 meters from a covered position and 150 meter from an open position. *t
