30% of the Ukrainian territory is contaminated with explosive objects
The State Emergency Service of Ukraine said that 30% of Ukraine’s territory is potentially contaminated with explosive objects that can be hidden anywhere, even in toys.
That’s why emergency workers, together with UNICEF in Ukraine, are going to teach mine safety to Ukrainian children.
About 174,000 square kilometers of the territory of Ukraine are polluted with explosives. It is equal to four total areas of Switzerland.
