The complexes transferred to the region are among the best robotic systems for demining in the world.
Kherson region received 2 mechanized demining complexes “DOK-ING” MV-4 and MV-10 made in Croatia.
This was announced by the head of the Kherson regional military administration Alexander Prokudin. He noted that the Russian invaders had turned the lands of the Kherson region “into an abundant minefield.”
“Mine clearance is ongoing, but it is a process that takes time and painstaking work. Mechanical demining machines can speed up this work,” Prokudin added.
According to him, these complexes are one of the best robotic demining systems in the world.
“They are able to carry out demining of the territory with a productivity of up to 4,000-5,000 square meters per day, depending on the complexity of the tasks. The functionality of these complexes is fantastic, but their main advantage is saving the lives of sappers,” added the head of the Kherson Regional Military District.
Consequences of the war in Ukraine
As UNIAN reported earlier, on March 17, in the Kherson region, a man blew himself up on a mine while harvesting firewood. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
And on March 13, four pyrotechnicians of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine were blown up by Russian explosives in the village of Posad-Pokrovskoe, Kherson region. On the same day, a local resident was blown up on an anti-tank mine in a field – he was in a car. The man died on the spot.
Earlier, on February 25, several people became victims of Russian aggression at once, blown up by mine shells of the occupiers. So, in the Berislavsky district of the region, two farmers died during agricultural work, who drove into the field on a tractor and stumbled upon Russian mines. And one of the Ukrainians stepped on an enemy stretch at his own dacha not far from the Kherson River Port.
