About 10%, or 270,000 Hectares of the Territory of Mykolaiv Region Are Mined — Vitalii Kim

Mine clearance works carried out in the Mykolaiv region are now concentrated in the de-occupied territories. Vitalii Kim, Head of Mykolaiv Oblast Military Administration, made this statement during the briefing in Media Center Ukraine — Ukrinform.

“On the territory of the Mykolaiv region, about 10% of the territories are mined or require inspection. This is 270,000 hectares. These are mainly agricultural lands, the large-scale works on which have not yet been started. But at the same time, we have additional teams from other regions, foreign partners and humanitarian mine clearance entities — 3 organizations which are now intensively clearing the locations that civilians need. Unfortunately, it is constantly reported that either a civilian or a mine clearance officer was blown up, because, unfortunately, Ukraine is currently the most mined country in the world,” Vitalii Kim said.
