Occupied Donbas becomes one of the most mined regions in the world. This was stated at the briefing on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Ursula Muller, whose statement is published on the organization's website.

"Eastern Ukraine also faces serve protection concerns. It is rapidly becoming one of the most mined areas in the world, which, if not addressed, will stall reconstruction and development for many years to come. Mine clearance and risk education is needed in all conflict-affected areas, particularly along the contact line, including the checkpoints at the de-facto boarder, "Muller said.
