Speaking at the general debate of the Disarmament and International Security Committee of the UN General Assembly, the Ukrainian delegation noted that the number of explosive ordnance has significantly increased in the Donbas as a result of the armed aggression of Russia against Ukraine. Terrorists set them up in residential areas and routes of communication between settlements. Mines carry a greater threat for civilians than for the armed forces, the Ukrainian delegation stressed.
Ukraine considers the efforts of the international community to ensure the proper implementation of the Protocol on Explosive Remnants of war in the Donbas as vital.
The Protocol on Explosive Remnants of War to the Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May be Deemed to be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects was adopted in 2003.
The Protocol is designed to solve the problems of humanitarian cleaning the territory after the end of armed conflict and imposes obligations on states demining removal or destruction of explosive remnants of war in post-conflict period.
