Donetsk, Aug 9 — DAN. Kiev gunmen have scattered PFM-1 “Lepestok” mines next to the railway station in Donetsk’s Petrovsky district, the Donetsk People’s Republic Territorial Defense Headquarters said on Tuesday.

 “Ukrainian armed formations have scattered banned PFM-1 mines in Donetsk’s Petrovsky district near the Mandrykino railway station, ” the HQ said.

Earlier reports said that Ukrainian gunmen had remotely mined Donetsk streets again and that a man had been wounded in a PFM-1 mine explosion.

PFM-1 “Lepestok” is a pressure-activated mine of Soviet production. It has two varieties, PFM-1 and PFM-1 °C. The only visible difference between the two is the letter “C” on the PFM-1 °C variety. PFM-1 has no self-destruct mechanism while PFM-1 °C can self-detonate in one to 40 hours since the time of installation. The time depends on ambient temperature.*jk
