MOSCOW, May 8 (Itar-Tass) - Two WWII-time shells were discovered in northwestern Moscow at an apartment building construction site on Wednesday.
Police cordoned the place. Sappers were sent to the site, the press service of the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass.
The projectiles were found in a trench at Mnevniki Street not far from an ambulance station. According to the preliminary information, one of the projectiles had a fuse.
The northwest of the capital was intensively bombed and shelled at the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, a source at the Moscow military commandant's headquarters told Itar-Tass. Sappers of the headquarters deal with discovered WWII ammunition. Some of shells did not explode and have remained in the ground since then. It is possible to find WWII-time dugouts with ammunition in this part of the capital.
The largest storage place with WWII-time ammunition was found in the northwest of the city in March 2010 at a construction site during work to lay a road and a heat line. In that case, several hundreds of 76-mm and 152-mm shells were found near Building 20 at Marshal Zhukov Avenue.
