  • registration procedure for mine action operators, provision of assistance to blast victims, definition of status for territories aimed for mine action purposes;
  • terms of reference for mine action quality inspectors and the secretariat of the anti-mine operational center, etc.

The draft law provides for the legal norms formulated to govern democratic civil control over the mine action sphere, Ukraine’s national mine action interests as well as principles of international cooperation and conducting economic activities in the realm of mine action. The bill also defines procurement contract essentials for works and/or services in the field of mine action, and suggests establishing liability for violation of national mine action legislation.


  • First Vice-Speaker’s address over Donbas pseudo-elections
