MOSCOW, April 3 — RIA Novosti. The drifting Ukrainian mines turned into an offensive weapon against NATO’s Black Sea countries and «guests of the Black Sea», decided Mikhail Popov, deputy secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.
FSB Russia Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian troops, after the commencement of the Russian special operation, installed about 420 mines on the approaches to the ports of Odessa, Ochakiv, Chernomorsk and Yuzhne. Some of them were taken to the open sea. IN FSB did not rule out the possibility of detonated mines drifting into the strait Bosporus and further to the Mediterranean seas because of the current.
«Either the teachers turned out to be useless, or the students were careless, or the rusty minreps let us down (the cable or chain with which the mine is attached to the anchor — editor’s note), but the fact is that the mines were not properly serviced,» Popow said in an interview for the TVNZ newspaper.
