On April 4th 2018 in the Kyiv Taras Shevchenko park on the occasion of the International Mine Action Awareness Day, Ukrainian officials and representatives of international organizations called for the protection and safety of 2 million Ukrainian men, women and children in the territories affected by the Russian aggression. They face constant life threat due to contamination from landmines and explosive remnants of war.

“Issue of landmine and explosive remnants contamination is critical in Donbas affecting thousands of civilians regularly. We thank the international organizations and donor countries for their continued support Ukraine with demining and mine clearance efforts” Deputy Foreign Minister Vasyl Bodnar stated during the opening ceremony.
