"Safe land" project
Today, Ukraine is the country with the highest landmine and explosive remnants of war (ERW) contamination in the world. This has dramatically increased the risk of injury and death of adults and children as a result of improper handling of ammunition and explosive remnants of war left in the territories of hostilities, in de-occupied cities and villages as terrible "gifts" from a cruel and insidious enemy, and in uncontrolled circulation throughout the country. Therefore, awareness raising in local communities about the dangers of explosive ordnance and training to prevent the risks associated with explosive ordnance is becoming more and more important every year.
The events of recent years, namely the temporary occupation, active military operations in most of our country, missile and bomb attacks on all regions of Ukraine, have clearly demonstrated the need for civilians to acquire certain knowledge about explosive devices, their types, properties and potential threats, as well as the rules of safe behavior in case of contact with dangerous objects or in extreme situations.
The main problems of the civilian population regarding the handling of explosive ordnance are as follows:
1. A low level of knowledge about the rules of safe behavior in situations involving mines and explosive ordnance, as well as about their main types and properties.
2. The problem of underestimating the danger of ERW, their impact and consequences, which leads to attempts to use them in various ways.
3. The problem of underestimating the danger of ERW, their impact and consequences, which leads to attempts to use them in various ways.
4. Protection of the population to preserve human life and health
5. Conducting training and information sessions on mine risk
6. Raising awareness and knowledge among citizens about the risks and rules of safe behavior in situations involving mines and explosive ordnance
7. Understanding the responsibility and care of citizens for their own safety
