Mine clearance: Swiss company hands over 20 special vehicles

May 7, 2023

The Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories has signed a memorandum of cooperation with Global Clearance Solutions (GCS), a Swiss manufacturer of mechanized demining equipment.


According to the Ministry of Reintegration, the cooperation should result in the company's involvement in demining. The machines will be used to clear mines and unexploded ordnance from agricultural land and critical infrastructure in the de-occupied districts of the Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, and Kherson regions.

To this end, the GCS management announced its intention to supply about 20 demining vehicles to Ukraine this year.

In addition, the parties agreed to cooperate in the field of technical and non-technical surveys of areas allegedly contaminated with unexploded ordnance. They also agreed to educate the population of the liberated territories about the risks associated with mines and unexploded ordnance.
