Germany to strengthen assistance to Ukraine in demining and investigating war crimes

Germany will strengthen assistance to Ukraine in demining and investigating war crimes and cybercrimes.

"During the meeting between Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Denys Monastyrsky and German Federal Minister of the Interior and Community Nancy Faeser, who arrived on an official visit to Ukraine, it was agreed that the German Government will strengthen assistance to Ukraine in investigating war crimes and cybercrimes," the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine informs.

It is also noted that joint humanitarian demining of territories where hostilities took place will be strengthened. At present, almost 212,000 sq km of Ukraine’s territory need such demining.

"We discussed several topics. One of them was the investigation into war crimes. We are very grateful to Germany for the help it has already provided. The Federal Ministry of the Interior provided technical assistance for the needs of our expert service totaling about EUR 1.25 million. This is a very significant contribution to the investigation into this type of crime," Monastyrsky said.

In addition, the German delegation visited the most destroyed towns of Kyiv region and the Antonov Airport in Hostomel, where they saw with their own eyes the consequences of the atrocities and crimes committed by the Russian army and the ongoing process of mine clearance.

Faeser underscored that Germany fully supports Ukraine in the war with the Russian Federation and that her country will fully assist Ukraine in investigating war crimes.

She also noted that Germany has sheltered 850,000 Ukrainians.

"We want to organize a reliable shelter for Ukrainian families who cannot return home. We plan to give them the opportunity to work, and children to go to kindergartens and schools," the minister said.

As reported, the units of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine received new equipment from Germany — two tractor trailers for the transportation of humanitarian aid and power generators.
