Russia landmine use

24 Jun, 2014

In a report made to an international landmine conference, Ukraine accuses Russia of using landmines in the Crimea Region.  Ukraine also says that Russia seized 605 anti-personnel landmines stored at a Ukrainian military depot in the Saki area of Crimea, which Ukraine was allowed to keep for training under the international Mine Ban Treaty. Russia is not a participant in the treaty. The report states that one Ukrainian soldier was killed and three others were wounded by mines and other explosive devices in southeastern Ukraine during April and May.
