“The mines that were dropped from Russia have done a lot of damage. Fortunately, no casualties were reported here today. Citizens living in settlements a few kilometers from the border with Russia should always be alert, and when people hear the first shots or explosions – should immediately flee to the shelter. If it is not possible to hide, for example, in a cellar or other storage, or the gaps caught you in the open – you need to fall to the ground, even in the smallest hole or deepening in the ground, cover your head with your hands, press your elbows tightly to the body and wait shelling “, – advises the chief of explosive department of GUNP Oleg Yevlash.
