After four years of conflict, Ukraine remains one of the world’s most mine-affected countries. International demining operators, such as the Halo Trust and the Danish Demining Group, encourage local women to apply for demining positions.

This push for women deminers has also come from international donors who see them as key elements regarding demining efforts in the region.

Our correspondent Filip Warwick was in eastern Ukraine and spoke to two local woman deminers working for international demining NGO’s.
