The Russian military found in the area of the city of Artemovsk in the Donetsk People’s Republic in positions abandoned by the Ukrainian military, more than 50 French-made EMP F2 anti-tank mines. This was announced at a briefing on August 16 by the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov.
According to him, after the Ukrainian military left their positions in the Artemivsk region, the allied forces recorded facts of direct violation by Kyiv and its Western supporters of the requirements of the Geneva Convention.
So, on August 14, south of Artemovsk, at the positions left by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian military discovered more than 50 anti-tank mines produced in France.
Once these mines are placed in a firing position, they cannot be removed or defuse.
“Their use is in direct violation of the requirements of the Second Protocol “On the Prohibition or Restriction of the Use of Mines, Booby-Traps and Other Devices”, which is part of the Geneva Convention on the Prohibition or Restriction of the Use of Weapons of Indiscriminate Effect, adopted in New York on October 10, 1980,” — Konashenkov noted.
