The city`s military administration is working with organizations from Switzerland and Denmark to help to demine liberated Izium in Kharkiv Oblast.

This was reported by Suspilne, referring to the deputy head of the city’s military administration Volodymyr Matsokin.

“The problem is very urgent. We are currently working with organizations from Switzerland and Denmark, they promise to help. I, for example, cannot get to the cemetery in Izium to visit my relatives – it is located on the slopes of Kremianets. The cemeteries are not demined, and the floodplain of the Siverskyi Donets river within the city limits is not demined. Not to mention the agricultural land and forests. There is a lot of work. People call specialists to their homes. Ammunition is also found in civilian buildings,” Matsokin said to Suspilne.

He adds that the Russians expected attacks from any side and mined “everything they could” in Izium.

“Ammunition was scattered very abundantly. There is a great danger. Last week we also had cases when people ended up in the hospital as a consequence of unexploded ammunition. The pattern of mining in our city can only be established by a thorough examination,” says Matsokin.

Earlier, a retired lieutenant general in the United States Army Joseph Keith Kellogg, and a delegation of American military servicemen and experts visited liberated Izium in Kharkiv Oblast.
