As a result of hostilities and decisions taken by the government of Ukraine, more than 40% of mines were mined on the territory of the country. This was stated by the British television channel Sky News, referring to the estimates of experts.
According to experts, Ukraine is the most mined country in the world.
“Mine pollution is massive. And it is not comparable to Syria or Afghanistan”, said Katerina Templeton, a representative of the Mines Advisory Group, an NGO.
The specialist noted that in Ukraine in large numbers you can see “anti-tank mines, anti-personnel mines, booby traps, as well as unexploded ordnance and cluster mines.”
At the same time, 611 people have already suffered from mines in Ukraine since February 24, 2022, and from 2014 to 2020, 1.1 thousand such incidents were recorded in the country.
The Mines Advisory Group specifies that mine clearance in Ukraine will take many years.
