It has been relatively calm at the Mariupol direction in the past two days, which provided possibility for the Ukrainian military to carry out lifting of mines.

Censor.NET reports citing the statement of the press center of the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) headquarters.

The statement reads: "Explosions have constantly been heard in the vicinity of Mariupol recently. Thus, the Ukrainian military conduct unexploded ordnance disposal taking advantage of the partial cessation of hostilities in their area of responsibility. The mine clearance is underway several kilometers away from the action area, which complicates the work of the engineers to some extent. As part of these activities, the team of engineers has found and destroyed about 100 mines with caliber of 82 mm and 23 mm, as well as nine 152-mm caliber artillery shells. The disposal of this dangerous ordnance was held in compliance with all security measures in cooperation with the officers of the Military Law Enforcement Service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine."
