A temporary storage place for neutralized remnants of Russian explosive devices appeared in Kharkiv. All of them were found on the territory of the city.

It is also called the “ammunition cemetery”. This is a huge area, densely littered with the remains of missiles and shells, which the Russian army has been terrorizing the city since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.
