As reported by Ukrinform, the Lithuanian-led coalition for demining in support of Ukraine met in Vilnius in January to discuss Kyiv's needs and possible contributions from partners.

The Lithuanian-led coalition aims to unite and coordinate existing and future demining assistance to Ukraine from donor countries. In order to achieve the coalition's goals, a support fund will be established, including for the purchase of tools and equipment for mine clearance on the territory of Ukraine.
