LET YOUR FILM DO THE TALKING

"Deminers like Lena Chyzh are meticulously and dangerously trying to clear eastern Ukraine of unexploded ordnance, booby traps and mines. Since the outbreak of war in 2014, some 16,000 square kilometers in the east are now contaminated by war materials, and children playing in particular, as well as adults, are falling victim to
of the explosive objects. Ukraine today (according to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense) is on the 3rd place of countries where there are the most mine accidents. In 2017 Ukraine was even on the 1st place of the countries where there were the most accidents with anti-tank mines - even before all the countries, such as Libya, Mali or Syria."
