Bombs in Ukraine – level 1

23-06-2022 15:00

Special groups search Ukraine. They search for bombs in playgrounds, fields, streets, and homes. The teams find 85,000 bombs so far.

Ukrainian soldiers place some of the bombs. They want to stop Russian soldiers. Russian soldiers place other bombs.

Some of them are very dangerous. They are cluster bombs. A cluster bomb is a bomb full of many smaller bombs. The big bomb can hurt people who are hundreds of meters away.

Experts say that the work will not be easy to clear the bombs. Some of them can stay in one place for many years. They can be dangerous for millions of people.

Difficult words: search (to look for something), playground (a place where children play), cluster (many things or people together).
