An underwater explosion of a naval mine occurred on the morning of August 14 near a pier in the Romanian town of Costinesti, Romanian news agency Agerpres wrote on its website.

The explosion caused no casualties or injuries, said the Inspectorate for Emergency Situations of Dobrudja of Constanta County. Fire and rescue service personnel and navy divers were sent to the scene.

Later, the agency said, another mine was reported near the town of Mangalia. A coast guard ship went there to neutralize the threat, but it turned out to be a drifting piece of wood, according to the portal.

Drifting Ukrainian naval mines are regularly detected in various parts of the Black Sea. The Black Sea Fleet Sergei Kotov warship on July 19 found a drifting mine in the south-western part, 180 km from the Bosporus Strait. Turkey is conducting joint raids with Bulgaria and Romania to search for these drifting naval mines.
