The soldiers were searching for militants in a wooded area at night when they accidentally set off the device, which was apparently fashioned out of an anti-personnel mine, Ingushetia Interior Ministry spokesman Nazir Yevloyev said. A duty officer at the ministry had said earlier that the soldiers were killed.
Yevloyev said the two were hospitalized in the neighboring North Ossetia region with serious injures, but that doctors believed their lives were not in danger.
Ingushetia, a mostly Muslim region adjacent to war-scarred Chechnya, is plagued by militant attacks that often target police or other government forces.
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
