According to demining NGOs operating in eastern Ukraine, the conflict zone is one of the five most mined regions in the world. With the war entering its fifth year, between 600,000 and a million civilians continue to cross the front line each month.

Mines, munitions and other unexploded devices have been responsible for nearly 2,000 deaths.

Two international NGO’s operating in eastern Ukraine describe the dangers and obstacles that landmines pose to the local population.
