GENEVA, February 17. /TASS/. Russia’s Ministry for Emergency Situations is ready to take part in mine-clearing activities in southeastern Ukraine if the Kiev governments sends an official request to the job, Minister Vladimir Puchkov told a news briefing on Monday.

"If the Kiev authorities send a request, we’ll be prepared to join that crucial humanitarian operation then," he said.

Puchkov recalled Russia offered a whole range of procedures in mine-clearing, including the clearance of ammunitions dating back to World War II and to the years of the Russian Civil War (from 1918 through 1921) in the Far-Eastern regions.

"Also, Russia has been implementing an international humanitarian mine clearance project in Serbia for a number of years," he said. "Of course, we have specialized vehicles, machinery and equipment for this and, on top of that, we have the specialists ready to go clear any terrain".
