The military emphasizes that during stormy weather, the mine danger in coastal waters and along the Black Sea coast increases significantly.

In many cases, mines explode when they collide with other objects in the water or when they are thrown onto the coast.

As reported, in late July, a sea mine washed up on a beach in the Odesa region.
