The last Japanese World War II fortifications were dismantled on Saturday on the Russian Sakhalin island. They were situated near the Prigorodny settlement of the Korsakovsky district, the southern part of the island, reported the district administration.
A plant will be built on their place which will be included into the industrial infrastructure of the Sakhalin oil and gas complex. Japan is taking an active part in the realisation of projects for the oil and gas production on Sakhalin. A part of the hydrocarbons will be delivered to Japan.
During the explosions, with the help of which the Japanese fortifications were dismantled, the movement along the nearest roads was restricted. Their remains were taken to the scrap-heap.
