In the forests of Estonia do not only “black archeologists”, but hunters explosives

After Estonian mass media spread the information that the Capo was arrested in IDA-Virumaa two people suspected of trafficking in explosives, having carried one of them to the category of so-called “black archeologists”, the correspondent of Delfi decided to find out opinion about such people in person, organizing a legal search of the remains of fallen soldiers and relics of the war.

Head of military history club “Otsing” (“Search”) Igor Sedunov, expressed his attitude to “black diggers” in one word: “Vandals”.

– They are divided into several categories. Now in IDA-Viru County is a very large unemployment rate. And some buy a metal detector and looking for old metal, which then pass. Along the way, they destroy historical relics that can be used in Museum expositions.

The second category, according to Igor Sedunova, most immoral.

– These “black diggers” in the woods looking for the remains of fallen soldiers — Soviet, German. They take away the dead preserved medals, tokens, inscribed medallions, buckles, medals, personal things, which could subsequently determine the identity of the remains and sell them. And then we find only disturbed the bones, and the trace of pageselectronic is lost. And he remains the unknown soldier. Moreover, the remains, as a rule, they are not buried, but thrown. We then collect and perezahoranivayut as missing.

As for those who like the search of explosives for the purpose of personal gain, Sedunov can’t understand how this category of “black diggers” are still preserved.

I thought that such people are no more, and, it turns out there, and they carry on their illegal trade. Explosives are deadly finds. And, we must assume that those who have them buy explosives during the war, planning the murder. The society unstable, someone to fire, someone will lose his job and be left without a source of income — become angry, he “frustrate the roof” and he starts to do silly things, which people can get hurt. And terrorism with explosives, too, because “thriving” in the world.

– What do you do when during a legal search works find ammunition containing dangerous explosives?

– We immediately inform the emergency service, waiting for the arrival of a group of demining experts and neutralize these findings. We share a very close contact, — said Igor Sedunov.

In a press-service of Department of the security police of Estonia stressed that people detained on suspicion of trafficking in explosives and carry out their illegal activities for private gain. In the framework of the criminal case, on the petition of the public Prosecutor and the decision of the court, both detained in custody for up to six months.
