Today after much hard work we finally managed to find the NW corner of the masive underground command post. This means that we finally know what part of the structure we are excavating.

It seems we are mostly in the area of the operative room with general Kabanovs sleeping quarters, the radio room and other smaller rooms still burried under over 1,5 m. of sand on the southern side of the underground structure

With having found the corner of the building it will now be much esier to continue excavating the remains in 2022-2023, Tomorrow we will continue excavating the westernmost part of the buílding as well as digging into its NE areas.
