Two power lines in Melitopol-Dzhankoy direction were mined by unidentified persons near the village of Chongar on the night Oct. 19-20, reports the QHA (Crimean News agency) citing the Ukraine’s Security Service in the Kherson region. Mining was done by two mortar shells, one of which detonated, and the second - no.

As a result, one line has been damaged, but not greatly so it still remains on the site. Police and explosives experts have been working at the scene.
