Their appearance can attract the attention of children.

The Russian occupiers remotely mine Ukrainian territory with SHOAB-0.5 shrapnel aerial bombs. These bombs resemble tennis balls in shape.

This information was reported by the press service of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine.

According to the report, these aerial bombs look like small, silver-colored balls. Their appearance may attract the attention of children, so it is crucial to warn them about the danger.

"Such aerial bombs are used by Russia. One RBK-500 cassette contains 565 SHOAB-0.5 ball bombs, each weighing 400 grams. They have a large damage zone. When they scatter and fall to the ground, some of them do not detonate. Therefore, they can explode from any touch, even though they do not have a seismic sensor. We all need to be very cautious. Under no circumstances should you approach or touch explosive objects. Immediately report such findings to 101. The extremely dangerous task of neutralizing unexploded ordnance is carried out exclusively by sappers," the State Emergency Service of Ukraine stressed.
