Our operations in Ukraine – September

As of the 1st of September 2023, more than 200 FSD staff members are at work in the provinces of Kharkiv and Chernihiv. The teams conduct surveys, clearance of minefields and carry out risk education sessions. Download the PDF to get more details.


The crucial first step

With the danger of explosive ordnance being widespread, it is easy to get overwhelmed. A preliminary survey is essential to take informed decisions on where and how to start clearance and education work. Follow our Ukrainian and Iraqi teams to learn more!

For a safer world

In 2022, FSD teams located and neutralised 6'949 landmines and pieces of unexploded or abandoned ordnance.
