Russia announces total demining of Mariupol’s Azovmash plant

Moscow, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that it has completed the demining of the Azovmash Heavy Engineering plant, located in the port city of Mariupol, in Donetsk.

Azovmash is the first facility to be demined since fighting ended in that city in the spring of last year.

The plan was founded in 1958 and became the largest machine-building enterprise in Ukraine, where thousands of Mariupol residents worked.

The plant’s infrastructure was severely damaged during fighting between Russian and Ukrainian troops to control the Azov seaport.

Fighting over Mariupol began on February 25, a day after Russia launched its military operation in eastern Ukraine.

On April 21, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu reported the liberation of Mariupol by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the people’s militia of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
