He told about this on the air of the Espreso TV channel
"Over the last day, our pyrotechnicians have cleared 17 hectares of territory in the de-occupied Kharkiv region. 344 units of explosive objects were discovered. If taken in general, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, more than 250,000 explosive objects have been discovered and defused. Of them, more than 2,000 aerial bombs," Khorunzhy said.
The press officer of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine also added that Ukrainian pyrotechnicians have a lot of work to do in de-occupied territories.
"The enemy planted a large number of explosive devices on Ukrainian land. From small mines to 155-mm artillery shells. That is why our pyrotechnicians have a lot of work. Especially in Kharkiv and Donetsk regions. We have injured pyrotechnicians. Because the enemy uses not only classic mining methods, but also disguises its mines," he added.
On October 26, an anti-tank mine exploded in the Izyum district of the Kharkiv region.
