The members of the Security Service and Armed Forces of Ukraine found an unarmed stake mine near the Maiorsk checkpoint after a clash with the subversive group of the so-called "DPR". According to the expert assessment, ПОМ-2Р1 ammunition with marking 80-01-03 is only produced in the Russian Federation.


The SBU operatives in conjunction with the members of the Military Prosecutor's Office documented this fact and added it to the evidence of the Russian aggression within the relevant criminal proceedings.

Reference: According to military experts, the inscription 80-01-03 on ПОМ-2Р1 mine indicates the factory of origin, the batch number, and the year of manufacture (2003). Ukraine has joined a number of international conventions banning the use of such munitions which makes their Ukrainian origin impossible. However, Russia has not ratified these agreements.
