The territory of about 30 thousand ha of Donetsk and Luhansk regions is contaminated by mines, explosive ordnance and ammunition, which did not explode.
UN assessed that to clear out the territory takes 500 mln dollars and at least a decade.
Demining was the point to discuss at the meeting at Donetsk Regional State Administration with the local farmers, the delegates from Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire and Stabilize the Boundary Line, chiefs of departments of Regional State Administration and a spokesman of Halo Trust (UK/US), international charitable non-profit organization. Halo Trust is experienced in humanitarian demining as well as in explosive devices and munitions that fail to explode and pose a threat to civilians.
