    Some could be booby trapped and if they have been left lying around who knows what condition the HE material inside them is like... it could have sweated and be rather unstable... it is better (safer) to just destroy it.

    Looks like they were looking for UXO and expended munitions, so they were not poking their rods into every square cm of ground... they were looking for fired or unfired ammo on the surface or freshly impacted the ground...

    Russian military engineers defuse over 580 US cluster bombs, ordnance in Laos


    The explosive objects found by the Russian deminers are of the BLU-26, BLU-63 and BLU-3B types of US-made aerial cluster bombs as well as artillery ordnance of various calibers


    MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Russian combat engineers have defused over 580 explosive objects in Laos, the Russian Defense Ministry reported on Tuesday.

    "Servicemen of the International Anti-Mine Center of the Russian Armed Forces discovered over 580 explosive objects during a humanitarian mine clearance in the area of Thong Hai Hin airport in the Xiangkhouang province (the Lao People's Democratic Republic)," the statement said.

    According to the agency, the explosive objects found by the Russian deminers are of the BLU-26, BLU-63 and BLU-3B types of US-made aerial cluster bombs as well as artillery ordnance of various calibers.

    The mission’s personnel is equipped with advanced means of protection and tools for detection of explosive devices. "The specialists of the Russian team use modern domestic tools for search, detection and protection, such as the IMP-3 induction mine detector, the MG -1I deep-earth metal detector, the MBI-P2 magnetometric bomb detector and the PPO-2I subsurface detector," the Defense Ministry specified.

    Sadly those 580 munitions might have been delivered in two or three bombs... there is a lot of work left to be done there and in a lot of other places around the world.

    Laos is the most heavily bombed country in the world... but it is OK because they are freedom bombs delivered by America...

    Not to detract from what these guys are doing... it is very important and dangerous work that is restoring normal life to the people who live in that part of the world.

    Russian sappers in Laos shared their experience and modern technology with local colleagues

    The training of the Lao People's Army personnel under the program "Organization of reconnaissance and clearing the area from explosive objects" took place from January 15 and ended on March 15

    MOSCOW, March 15. / TASS /. Russian military engineers trained 30 deminers from Laos in modern demining skills and familiarized them with domestic mine action equipment as part of a training course at the branch of the International Mine Action Center (IPC of the RF Armed Forces) in this country. This was reported on Monday by the Ministry of Defense.

    "In the course of the training, the graduates learned to use Russian means of searching for explosive objects, previously donated by the Russian Federation, as well as to identify and destroy detected ammunition in various ways."

    According to the ministry, the training of the Lao People's Army servicemen under the program "Organization of reconnaissance and cleaning the area (objects) from explosive objects" took place from January 15 and ended on March 15 at the territory of the branch of the MPC of the RF Armed Forces with a solemn ceremony of presenting certificates.

    "Such training courses for sappers on the territory of Laos are being held for the third time, starting in 2018. During this time, 69 military personnel of the Lao engineering forces have been trained and trained," the department explained.

    Russian sappers will help to clear mines at the Sukhumi airport, which has been closed since the 1993 Georgian-Abkhaz war

    Russian sappers will help to clear mines at the Sukhumi airport, which has been closed since the 1993 Georgian-Abkhaz war

    The Russian Ministry of Defense will assist Abkhazia in clearing mines at the Sukhumi airfield, an engineer-sapper unit from the Southern Military District has already arrived in the republic.

    Russian sappers will clean up the territory of the airport, which has been closed since 1993. During the Georgian-Abkhaz war in September 1993, Abkhaz troops managed to blockade the Georgian army in Sukhumi. The Georgians tried to organize the delivery of ammunition and food through the airport they controlled, but the Abkhazian artillery did not allow it, destroying five Georgian planes in the airport in three days. Since then, the airport has not been operated.

    A unit from Khankala was transferred to Abkhazia. Sappers on military equipment marched to Gudauta and settled on the territory of a Russian military base. In the near future they will start cleaning the airfield from unexploded shells and mines. How long the work will take is not reported.

    As explained in the Russian military department, the leadership of the republic has long been planning to restore the operation of the airport; the issue of demining this facility was raised back in 2020 during negotiations between Putin and Bzhania. Subsequently, the Abkhaz authorities turned to the Russian Ministry of Defense for help.

    Demining work will begin after preparatory work. All sappers have been trained in special training centers of the Russian Ministry of Defense and have the appropriate clearance.
