The Ministry engages local authorities, local self-governing bodies and community representatives to actively communicate and inform the population about mine danger, suspicious and dangerous areas, collection and generalization of information on injured from mines and explosives and further assistance.
The meeting of the Demining Coordination Group at Popasnianskyi raion State Administration was held on November 28. The stages of the project, results, benefits and urgent needs were discussed.
Today more than three thousand citizens of Popasna, Zolote, and Hirske, including schoolchildren, employees of enterprises operating in the areas near the contact line, received information on mine danger. Also MTOT in cooperation with SESU developed information materials on the rules when dealing with explosive objects.
According to the results of non-technical examination, three potentially dangerous sites with a total area of more than 70 ha in the town of Hirske in Luhansk oblast were detected. These areas require further technical inspection and marking of dangerous areas.
At the moment, MTOT continues to coordinate the implementation of the project, in particular actions on technical inspection of the areas identified as potentially dangerous.
