Every day in Ukraine, mine-related civilian casualties are reported. The most affected areas are the Kherson and Kharkiv regions, territories previously occupied by Russia.
This was reported by the UK Ministry of Defense on Twitter.
As noted in the summary, with the arrival of spring and an increase in the number of people engaged in agricultural activities, the risk of civilian mine incidents will increase
Over 750 mine related casualties among civilians have been reported since the start of the invasion - one in eight has involved a child.
"It will likely take at least a decade to clear Ukraine of mines," the British Defense Ministry noted.
