Quote: "We found traces of chemical weapons in the village of Bilka - sarin and other substances. Ampoules were found. Now the Security Service of Ukraine is working on this. Perhaps the occupiers wanted to use this chemical in Kyiv, Poltava or other cities." 

Details: According to Bova, the Russian soldiers laid a lot of trip wires during the month that they were in Trostianets. Many cemeteries, forest plantations, park areas and administrative facilities have been mined.

In Trostianets, two groups work on mine clearance every day: one is from the State Emergency Service of Ukraine and the other is from the military.

Ukrainian defenders have been demining new areas every day, but there are still dangerous places, and some fields are just strewn with explosives.
