Leonid Kuchma, the representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group on settlement of the situation in Donbas, believes that Ukraine cannot solve the problem of demining Donbas by itself. 

This is what he told reporters of Ukrayinska Pravda during a working visit to Obukhiv in Kyiv Region.

"The problem of demining is a huge problem. This is a problem that Ukraine alone will not be able to handle. But the whole world is ready to support us, including the United Nations," Kuchma said.

However, in his opinion, one good sign is that large-scale fighting is not taking place in Donbas, and in this way "we have protected the lives of many people."
