MOSCOW, July 14. /TASS/. Specialists of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations will continue work to clear Serbia of unexploded munitions, the ministry said on its website on Thursday.
It said the Russian government made the decision in June to continue a program to clear Serbia of mines following an appeal from that country. At least 23 million square meters is yet to be cleared of mines, it said.
Specialists from the ministry’s national emergency humanitarian reaction corps are ready to head to Serbia to make part of a Russian-Serbian team.
In 2008-2015, the Ministry for Emergency Situations implemented a program to help Serbia in humanitarian mine clearance. More than 200 Russian specialists were trained in accordance with international standards of mine clearance activity within that time.
More than 4.6 million square meters were cleared of mines and cluster ammunition in eight years of joint work. Almost 13,000 explosive items were defused to reclaim the territory.
