Russian mines are washing up on busy Black Sea tourist beaches, frequently exploding, and sometimes even killing holidaymakers. As recently as Monday, a Russian mine exploded in the Romanian Black Sea resort of Costinesti, although it caused no injuries or damage, according to local reports. Meanwhile, another mine was also discovered in the water there. “It is believed that a Russian sea mine exploded,” said the spokesman of the Romanian Navy, Colonel Corneliu Pavel, Sofia News Agency reported. “These sea mines are a danger not only to shipping but also to shore-based activities.” A witness told Digi24 of a “loud explosion” and “a lot of black smoke”. The tourist said: “There was a loud explosion. I was on a terrace, I saw a lot of black smoke. We were told something had exploded. The police and the fire department are here. Some tourists are still in the water.” Navy divers scrambled to dismantle the mine, with the navy chief reporting divers have had to neutralise five sea mines in Romania since Ukraine was invaded in February 2022.
