A ghost town. This is how one village is known in the Donetsk region. There are just 6 houses and 8 people left here. The Ukrainian line of defense runs along the outskirts of the village. Every day, locals go to sleep and wake up to the sounds of shots and explosions.
On October 29, the VII-th Meeting of the Commission on Rescue and Protection of the Population in Emergency Situations takes place in Warsaw (Republic of Poland). It operates within the framework of the Ukrainian-Polish Intergovernmental Coordination Council for Interregional Cooperation.
Mine safety of the population is one of the priorities of Donetsk rescuers. Due to the long term combat activity in the territory of our Oblast, no one can name the number of explosive objects that remain undetected and undamaged. That is why it is very important for every citizen to know well what an explosive object is and what to do if it is detected. Rescuers of the Main Department regularly carry out mine safety prevention measures with both the adult population and the younger generation.
