Another shell from the Great Patriotic War found in Sevastopol

CrimeaPRESS reports:

Specialists of the engineering and technical group of OMON «Berkut-S» conducted a survey of unexploded ordnance discovered during earthworks carried out in a private building zone in the Balaklavsky district of Sevastopol.

The workers reported the found suspicious object to law enforcement agencies. They discovered it during excavation work. The workers, using an excavator, chose the ground, and accidentally hooked an explosive object with a bucket. Arriving at the scene, specialists from the engineering and technical group of the OMON «Berkut-S» of the Russian Guard conducted an examination and found that it was a German SC-50 aerial bomb from the Second World War, weighing 50 kilograms. The Rosgvardeytsy established that the state of the fuse does not allow further transportation of the aerial bomb, due to the fact that the excavator bucket tooth touched the fuse, breaking the nut holding the fuse itself and tore it off. In compliance with all safety standards, the employees of the National Guard eliminated the problem on the spot by removing the fuse and minimizing the level of danger— noted in the press service of the Main Directorate of the National Guard for the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol (Sevastopol).
