Mines and tripwires

Vladimir Zelensky noted that mines and tripwires laid by the enemy and unexploded shells remain among the greatest threats. It takes a lot of effort and time to neutralize them. The President expressed his deep gratitude to all the specialists and rescuers who carry out this important task.

Once again I urge our citizens who are returning to the liberated communities to be very attentive. Do not enter territory that has not yet been verified. Don't go into the woods yet. If you see anything that looks like a mine or a tripwire, immediately notify the police and rescuers. Do not hesitate and do not try to remove dangerous items on your own, Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned.
