“Today is the 86th day… the war is still going on and we have 300,000 square meters that need to be cleared. Tentatively, we are talking about the fact that we need five to seven years to clear mines,” stated the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Meri Akopyan, on May 20, 2022, during the first meeting of the International Coordination Center for Humanitarian Demining, established in Ukraine.
