The Defence Ministry of Ukraine has published an interactive map of territories in Donetsk and Luhansk regions polluted with mines and explosives.

"Using the map, you can learn the name, area, type and status of a mined area, a type of threat, a type of label, a reporting organization and an inspection date," the ministry's press service said.

Both servicemen and civilians were repeatedly wounded and killed after tripping mines.

The publication seeks to prevent such accidents with explosives.

The map was developed by the Defence Ministry with support from The HALO Trust.
