The Investigative Committee of Russia continues to investigate the criminal case against the commander of the 91st movable barrage detachment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Major Vyacheslav Kharitonenko, and contract servicemen subordinate to him.

“It was established that, on the orders of Kharitonenko, the servicemen of the specified unit carried out mining of 45 km of the coastline, as well as the coastal waters of the Sea of ​​\u200b\u200bAzov in the Mangush region of the Donetsk People’s Republic. The local population was not warned about the work performed. As a result, a fishing vessel was blown up by mines and sank, 4 sailors were killed, a local resident and her grandson were blown up and killed on the beach, ”said Svetlana Petrenko, official representative of the Russian Investigative Committee.

The location of the fishing vessel blown up by a mine has been established, and Russian sappers who have cleared the mines set by Ukrainian servicemen have also been interrogated.

Petrenko noted that the investigators established the location of the named unit and examined it. During the inspection, service documentation was identified and confiscated, and a place for loading mines into a special mining vehicle “Amphibian” was established. In addition to a large number of empty boxes intended for storing mines, 20 unused mines were found, each containing about 10 kg of explosive, as well as 5 fuses for them.

With the participation of specialists, explosive objects were destroyed in accordance with the established procedure. And Kharitonenko was put on the federal and interstate wanted list, the court chose a preventive measure in the form of detention (in absentia).

Recall that from February 25 to March 4, in the waters of the Black and Azov Seas, the remnants of the mine-sweeping forces of the Ukrainian Navy placed about 420 sea anchor mines of an outdated design of the YaM-1 type, in the Black Sea-370 and in Azov-50.

As a result of storms in the Black Sea, or perhaps due to the lack of professionalism of Ukrainian servicemen, cables with bottom anchors broke at about 10 Ukrainian mines. They surfaced and, under the influence of wind and currents, drifted freely in the western part of the Black Sea in a southerly direction.

One Ukrainian mine was recently discovered and neutralized by Turkish sailors. The second Ukrainian mine has been neutralized in Romanian territorial waters.

No one can know where the remaining Ukrainian mines are drifting today. Especially the leadership of the Kyiv nationalist regime, which through its criminal actions created a direct mine threat to transport and cargo ships of all Black Sea countries.
