LIVE War in Ukraine the country asks for artillery

ZELENSKY

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday asked the international community to help his country get rid of mines and other unexploded devices, which he said infest an area equivalent to that of Cambodia or Uruguay.

“To date, 174,000 square kilometers of Ukrainian territory are infested with mines or other unexploded devices,” Zelensky said in a video address to New Zealand’s parliament.

“There is no real peace for any child who might die from a hidden Russian anti-personnel mine,” he insisted, asking New Zealand, whose army is experienced in matter, to lead efforts to clear mines and mitigate the environmental consequences of the conflict.
