The 35-year-old woman blew up on a mine near Novotroitsk. Locals told about this. The accident happened yesterday, on 14th of may. According to preliminary information, woman was walked from the territory occupied by the Russian Federation in the direction of the territory that is controlled by the Armed forces of Ukraine. She tried to cross the line of demarcation beyond the checkpoint and  blew up on a mine of russian fighters “PMN-2”.

This mine prohibited by the Ottawa Treaty. The wounded woman crawled to positions of the Armed forces of Ukraine. She received first aid and was sent to the Central district hospital of Volnovakha. As a result of explosion the woman has lost part of her left leg.

There is a risk of amputation of the greater part of the limb. The victim prescribed in Avdeevka.

Rescuers are warning the locals  to be careful, do not do an amateur activity and do not go to places where there is a possibility of mining.

It’s useful to note that anti-personnel mines “PMN-2” and “POM-2” are in service of the Russian Federation and  systematically delivered authorities of that country to use of terrorist organizations so-called as “DNR/LNR” under the guise of humanitarian aid.

The using of those mines prohibited by The Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on their Destruction, known informally as the Ottawa Treaty (1997). Ukraine signed the Convention in 1999 and ratified it in 2005.

We will remind that there was online-meeting of the  Forum of security cooperation of the OSCE held on Wednesday, 13th of may 2020. That online-meeting was in the framework of the presidency of the Ukraine on the issue of light weapons, ammunition and mines.

In the center of attention was the problem of the mine threat in the East of Ukraine in the area of conflict which was unleashed by the Russian Federation. Partners of Ukraine condemned the supply of Russian military equipment to fighters.

Despiteall international agreements, including agreement of The Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine in Minsk, the Russian Federation continues war in the Donbass supplying terrorists of the banned weapons, which killed innocent civilians.
