Ukraine Live: Ukraine Forces Bomb disposal experts destroy Russian 500-KG bomb – Watch Video

Bomb disposal experts of the State Emergency Service have destroyed a Russian aerial bomb in Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

The Information Was Released By The press service of the State Emergency Service in Ukraine.

On 28 February, the State Emergency Service of Ukraine received a report of an explosive item found in a field in one of the settlements of Zaporizhzhia Oblast on its emergency number.

Upon arrival at the scene, bomb disposal experts identified the munition as an unexploded 500-kilogramme high explosive air-launched bomb (FAB-500).

The difficulty in seizing and subsequently destroying the explosive item was that the bomb had a modified fuze, which made it impossible to transport it. Due to the unpredictability of the munition mechanism, the bomb had to be detonated at the site of discovery.

“The experts draw the attention of citizens to the correct algorithm of behaviour when detecting explosive items: do not approach, do not touch it with your hands or make any mechanical impact, and report it to the emergency services.”
