ROSTOV-ON-DON, November 6. /TASS/. Another Ukrainian dud artillery shell was found in southern Russia’s Rostov region in the area bordering Ukraine. For the last two months, this is already the 15th case of stray shells hitting Russia from the neighbouring military zone. The latest incident occurred in Matveyevo-Kurgansky district, where a shell of multiple launch rocket system Uragan has hit a garden of a private household on Wednesday, Russian Emergencies Ministry reported on Thursday.
Not only stray shells are found in the Russian border area in the Rostov region. For instance, a rural road was mined in a local district in early September. Mines were also found in two border districts. A Russian border guard has hit a mine when patrolling the state borderline in the second half of September. Emergency services also have to put out frequent major fires triggered by blasts of Ukrainian shells as was the case in Tarasovskoye forestry on September 15.
The most large-scale incident occurred on July 25, when 45 Ukrainian shells hit village Primiussky in the Rostov region. Houses and power lines were damaged, 50 local residents were evacuated in the incident.
