Concerned residents of rural Druzhbivka called head Sergey Nesterov, who immediately went to the place. And found that right at the historical memo five kilometers from Druzhbivka wielded “black archeologists”. Their arrogance was astounding: the mound was destroyed methodically in broad daylight, not shovels – worked here excavator defiantly red. And standing next to the minivan of the brand “Mitsubishi”, which was moving the vandals.

Village head called the police. But while guards traveled from the district to Druzhbivka, “black archeologists” realized that they were spotted and fled.

“Ten years ago our mound already tried to open – cut the top of it. Now the excavator dug four pit depth of three meters, however, access to artifacts from a burial interrupted them, – said Sergey Nesterov . – I went on the trail of criminals. They drove to the highway for common use, and there is already anything it was impossible to distinguish. I can tell only one: the vandals are definitely not one of our village – the red excavator farmer has.”

Residents of Druzhbivka hope that the police will help find the “black archeologists”, and holding them accountable for the destruction of historical monuments. Vejprty excavator – serious “clue”. Hardly drove at illegal excavations come from afar. too much fuel would be required.

In particular, according to Sergey Nesterov, ten years ago, “turbovsky” Kurgan already tried to open, and even cut him with the tip. Now the excavators have dug four test pits (up to three meters deep). However, the villagers still came in time, and prevented the hunters for the artifacts to get to the burial.

But on this head Druzhbivka did not stop – he went on the trail of criminals. And they brought the loop only to the highway, where it was impossible to disassemble, where went the criminals. But it is known that the vandals are not local.

The villagers hope that the police will be able to find the “black archeologists”, and after that attract their responsibility for acts that destroyed a historic reminder. Yes and very perceptible excavator is a serious “clue”.
