Japan to help Ukraine remove landmines


Japan will support Ukraine in the removal of landmines planted by Russian forces, Report informs, referring to Yomiuri.

The government will work with Cambodia, which has expertise in landmine removal, and also plans to give landmine detectors to Ukraine.

According to the Japanese government’s plan, Ukrainian personnel will take part in landmine-clearing training in Phnom Penh in January at the earliest, and around April, Japan and Cambodia will send a team of experts to Poland to continue the training.

At a meeting with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen in Phnom Penh in March, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said he wanted to share such technologies with other countries.

Japan has provided Ukraine with non-lethal military equipment, such as bulletproof vests and helmets, as well as power generators and solar-powered lights to support Ukrainians over winter. Japan has also provided financial assistance worth about $1 billion through international organizations.
