The United Nations Refugee Agency continues to provide technical assistance - best international practices and technical equipment - to enhance the effectiveness of the Rescue Service response in the Donetsk region.
The pyrotechnical units of the Main Department of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine in Donetsk region clear the territory of the region from ammunition. However, a significant part of the Donetsk oblast is still contaminated with explosive objects. In 2017, 10 civilians were killed by mines, in 2018 – 4 civilians. At the beginning of 2019, 2 men were killed by grenade exploded in Mariupol. That’s why mine risk education is of primary importance. The rescuers continue informing the population about the danger of explosive remnants and mines by means of posters, brochures, leaflets, etc.
