Armed Forces of Ukraine fired two missiles in Donetsk, equipped with mines “Petal”

High-explosive anti-personnel mines (PFM-1) “Petal”. File photoDONETSK, Aug 27 Ukrainian troops fired two rockets from a BM-27 Uragan equipped with Lepestok mines at Donetsk and five 155mm shells at Makiivka in the DPR, the DPR office said in the JCCC.” Shelling was recorded from the AFU in the following directions: 18.50 – the settlement of Novomikhailovka – the city of Donetsk (Leninsky district): two rockets were fired from the MLRS BM-27 “Hurricane” (equipped with anti-personnel mines PFM “Lepestok”); 20.15 – the settlement Orlovka – the settlement of Makeevka (Chervonogvardeysky district): five shells of 155 mm caliber were fired,” the report says. The Petal anti-personnel high-explosive mine (PFM-1) is designed to damage the legs and works when a person steps on it. It is installed on the ground by remote means of mining. A special insidiousness of a mine for civilians is that, due to its unusual shape, people who are not familiar with this mine may not recognize it as a dangerous object. The mine is almost an exact copy of the American mine BLU-43/B (Dragontooth). Artillery with a caliber of 155 millimeters is used by NATO countries. Also in Ukraine, a wheeled self-propelled artillery mount “Bogdan” was developed and manufactured in a single copy for such a caliber. The United States has previously supplied Kyiv with long-range 155mm M-777 howitzers, Ukrainian forces have already used them to shell cities, including Donetsk, killing civilians. jpg” /> Nebenzya showed at the UN Security Council mines “Petal” used by Kyiv
