It became known about Ukraine's intentions to mine the Kerch Strait with underwater anchor mines


Ukraine plans to use 20 kg sea mines against the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

The Ukrainian defense department has received at its disposal a significant number of naval anti-ship mines, which it intends to use not only to mine approaches to its territorial waters, where Russian ships had previously appeared, but also for the likely mining of the Kerch Strait. We are talking about naval mines, reminiscent of the ammunition of the first half of the 20th century, the mass of the warhead of which is about 20 kilograms, which is quite enough to destroy not only a warship, but also their whole connection in case of falling into a vast minefield.

“The Ukrainian Navy received from the private company Technokluster repaired anchor and anti-landing mines that can be used against ships of the Black Sea Fleet. Mines resemble World War II ammunition, but this does not mean that they are not dangerous. One of the photographs, which was published by Defense Express, shows a mine that is very similar to an anchor galvanic strike mine of the 1943 model. The charge of such an ammunition is 20 tons of TNT. At the same time, it is clear that they worked on the mine and made certain changes, albeit minor. Considering that Kiev actually lost its fleet in 2014, mine warfare is extremely relevant, since serious problems can be created for any ships "- сообщает publication "Utro.ru".

It is noteworthy that the rearmament of the Ukrainian forces, which began at the beginning of the year, may indicate preparations for large-scale hostilities, and, first of all, we are talking about the eastern part of Ukraine, however, harsh statements about Crimea cause more and more fears about the beginning fighting in this direction.

Obviously, Zelensky himself will de-mine them! Urgently let the courses take place on working with mines.

"At the same time, it is clear that they worked on the mine and made certain changes, albeit insignificant"? Did they eat sugar there?

"The charge of such an ammunition is 20 tons of TNT."
Is that a mininuclear ammunition? 20 tons of TNT is at least a railway carriage. I've never seen a mine of this size
