Five years of ongoing conflict has made Ukraine one of the most mine-affected places in the world.
The situation poses a large threat to the civilian population and is unlikely to be resolved quickly even when the conflict is over.
Identifying landmines and other unexploded ordnance is a very time-consuming process. And it's expensive: it only costs €2,50 to lay a mine, but €900 is spent to remove each one.
In this 360° report, you can join the mine clearers from the Halo Trust at work to see first-hand how landmines are detected and neutralised - entirely by hand.
