Poladov noted that tens of thousands of anti-tank mines were found.
"Among them are unexploded ordnance and anti-personnel mines. Most of the mines found are plastic anti-tank mines. Their detection is difficult due to the low content of metals in them. Most of the mines are of Armenian production. Work in this direction continues," he said.
