Ukrainians have learned how to clear mines from Kosovo instructors after an almost one-month advanced training course.
A mixed troop of Ukrainian civilian and military personnel is in Kosovo and is learning how to clear mines during a four-week advanced training course.
The course is led by local instructors who participated in the clearing of tens of thousands of mines and cluster bombs dropped by Serbian forces who also left unexploded devices from NATO planes.
“The war in Ukraine is intensifying, but there is also a great need to clean up unexploded ordnance,” coach Hekuran Dula told Reuters.
