Five people received shrapnel wounds and three died as a result of careless handling of ammunition in the region since the beginning of the year, - the communications department of the General Directorate of the National Police in the Donetsk oblast reports.

In most cases, the cause of the explosions was negligence of citizens. So, a resident of the Nikolske district found a grenade, brought it home and decided to test it with a friend. The result is a traumatic amputation of the hand.

Often such actions end irreparably. Two young men died under similar circumstances in Mariupol on Christmas Day.

The danger is represented by shells, mines, grenades and improvised explosive devices. Even cartridges or gun powder can lead to death or injury by negligence.

Law enforcers remind citizens that when they detect suspicious objects, they need to move to a safe distance and inform about the dangerous discovery by calling "101", "102", to warn passers-by of the danger and wait for the arrival of experts to indicate the place of discovery.
