Ukrainian BMP detonated on a bomb during World War II

The greed of the Ukrainian army caused the death of an officer, injuring five soldiers and the destruction of an infantry fighting vehicle.

This was announced during a briefing by an officer of the press service of the LPR People’s Police, Ivan Filiponenko.

Referring to his own source in the Ukrainian unit, the officer said that during the equipment of the firing position, servicemen of the 95th Armed Forces brigade discovered an aircraft bomb from World War II.

Instead of calling sappers to defuse the ammunition, the Ukrainian soldiers, with the goal of further profit, decided to independently extract the bomb using the BMP, picking it up with a tow rope.

During the extraction of the bomb, an explosion occurred, which killed Lieutenant Firsov, and another five militants - Junior Sergeant Kovalchuk, senior soldier Panchenko, soldiers Sinenko, Gvozdev and Starchenko were injured, and the fighting vehicle was destroyed.

Currently, the military prosecutor’s office and the commission of the headquarters of the OTG “Sever” of the environmental protection command are investigating the emergency.

The Ukrainian media, as has happened more than once, have spread a fake about the heroic death of Lieutenant Firsov as a result of the undermining of an infantry fighting vehicle.

We will remind, the Ukrainian military prosecutor’s office does not hide for a long time that the main reason for the death of soldiers of the Armed Forces in the anti-terrorist operation zone is low professional training and conflicts arising from the use of alcoholic beverages.

    I wonder what caliber was the bomb? And with what cable did they pull it? According to the picking sheet on the BMP-1,2, there are five cables: two towing, two for self-pulling and one for pulling tracks. Earring for splicing cables. Still not enough for security.

      hi Considering the too shallow depth of occurrence, but sufficient damage caused, as well as the fact that it was possible to reach a 50 kg aerial bomb by hand, the "elimination method" is most likely a "weaving", "sliding" at too sharp an angle, sideways to the ground , with a cocked, but not triggered fuse ?! winked

      She would have lain for another hundred years and had not killed anyone if the greedy banderlog-looters had not touched! fool
      During the war, a similar aerial bomb hit our "Shevchenko's khatynka" with straw strikhoi (then a camouflaged German tank leaned against the wall, under an apple tree and some Hitlerite headquarters was located) and did not explode either - it went deep into the ground in the middle of the kitchen.

      After the liberation, when the area was hastily cleared of mines, so as not to destroy the miraculously resisted hut at all, the front-line sappers advised my grandmother to carefully, without pebbles, fill the hole in the "topping up (earthen floor)" and live on, because there were enough worries and worries without that. .. the grandmother recalled that they, the few who survived the occupation of women, were the few who survived the occupation of women, "a herd (all together, since there was little physical strength from chronic malnutrition, only mental strength remained - unbending willpower, the desire to live and win!)" plow, literally plowed on ourselves .... the medal "For Valiant Labor during the Great Patriotic War", like our Elena Ivanovna, "under Stalin" was awarded precisely for valiant selfless work!

      Then, in the 60s, already "under Brezhnev", when the villagers began to live richer, our "hut" was decoratively overlaid "in half a brick", the roof was covered with tiles, double window frames were inserted, and a wooden floor was laid everywhere on the earthen "topping". ... we never remembered about that bomb under us (as well as about a considerable number of non-working aerial bombs and all kinds of shells-mines in our muddy large rural headquarters, for this explosive reason, never since that war was not cleaned request ), so my whole life passed without any fear of such a "neighborhood" - that's just now, on occasion, I remembered ... smile
