The UK has provided considerable equipment and training to Ukraine to improve their ability to clear mines. This has included over 1,500 sets of both vehicle-mounted and 'on-the person' mine clearing and explosive ordnance disposal equipment, including necessary training.

The UK is also currently delivering counter explosive training to Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel and training Ukrainian Navy personnel to conduct mine countermeasure activity at sea.

Several mine clearance capabilities are also under consideration for inclusion in the next package of support from the International Fund for Ukraine. This package is subject to review and approval by the multinational Executive Panel which oversees the Fund.
