The Ukrainian side to the JCCC says the enemy employs POM-2 anti-personnel mines with a self-destruction period of four to 100 hours (an average of 23-24 hours).

It is noted that there are modifications of mines without self-destruction mode.

The enemy uses RPG-7 grenade launchers to launch modernized PG-7 RDGs.

"The kill zone is up to 16 meters. A mine detonates once someone trips over one of the four thin nylon wires, each 10 meters long," the report says.
