Munitions Safely Destroyed Near the CPC Facilities at Novorossiysk

20210416.jpgOn April 15, 2021 at 16:55 Moscow Time, the air bombs and other munitions dated back to the Great Patriotic War, as found earlier in 430 m from the boundary of CPC-R Tank Farm, were destroyed safely by the RF MChS de-mining experts who arrived from Rostov-on-Don at Raevsky Polygon. The emergency status has been lifted, and the CPC Marine Terminal facilities continue to be operated in the routine manner.

One FAB-250 air bomb, one AO-10 fragmentation air bomb, two artillery shells, one mortar bomb, six grenades and a number of 7.62 mm cartridges were discovered by a specialized power line prospecting team near Glebovskoe Village, Novorossiysk Municipal Entity, on April 8 and 12.

CPC-R Joint-Stock Company, jointly with MChS, MVD and other competent subdivisions, undertook all appropriate steps to provide for safety of the local community, company personnel and facilities. MVD and other services concerned arranged round-the-clock duty protection of the location to prevent access of any alien persons there. During this, all CPC-R Marine Terminal facilities were operated in the scheduled manner.

In 1942-1943, the current Municipal Entity of Novorossiysk City was the area of furious fighting. Every square meter of the surface was hit by up to 300 kg of metal items then. Some explosive munitions are still found there. Per the MChS statistics, about 1,000 explosive items have been found and destroyed at the Municipal Entity of Novorossiysk over the last five years. In the early 2000th in the course of the earth-moving work during construction of the CPC facilities in Krasnodar Krai, more than 7,000 air bombs, shells, mines and grenades were discovered and safely destroyed. The experience of CPC specialists and good cooperation with the competent structures of RF MVD and MChS provide for prompt responding to such situations to ensure safety of the local community, company personnel and industry facilities.
