As part of the formation of the Coalition of Demining Ukraine, the first working meeting of its members took place on January 11 in Vilnius (Lithuania).
In addition to Ukraine and Lithuania, 19 countries took part in the meeting, and representatives of six more participated remotely. Our country was represented by members of the Ministry of Defense and the Armed Forces.
They gave the partners a list of our needs in the field of demining so that each of the member states of the Coalition could contribute to the common cause.
The purpose of the Coalition of Demining Ukraine is to coordinate the current and future support of Ukraine from donor countries in the field of demining.
A support fund is also being created to achieve the goals of the coalition, including the provision of equipment necessary for demining the territory of Ukraine.
The Lithuanian-led coalition will assist Ukraine in both combat and humanitarian demining.
