Thousands of these types of mines were held in warehouses on the coast and islands near Tallinn (Astangu, Paljassaare, Naissaare) until the year 1994.
The Naissaar Island is situated in the Gulf of Finland, 15 kilometres away from Tallinn. As a military object, Naissaar has always interested the rulers of Estonia, which is the reason why the inhabitants have often been forced to leave the island. The area of Naissaar is 18,6 km2. Naissaar used to be a favourite spot for pirates and smugglers during the earlier times.
