In the framework of the latest Ukraine visit by High Representative/Vice-President (HR/VP) Josep Borrell, the State Special Transport Service of Ukraine received a DOK-ING MV-10 mine-clearing system. This is the latest delivery in the framework of the European Union’s EUR 25 million support package for humanitarian demining in Ukraine announced at the EU-Ukraine Summit of February 2023. The package is designed to meet the urgent needs of Ukraine’s state mine action operators, ranging from basic equipment for demining teams to pyrotechnic vehicles and robotic demining systems. Due to Russia’s war of aggression, Ukraine is among the countries most contaminated by mines and explosive remnants of war worldwide. Demining of areas liberated from Russian occupation is essential for Ukraine’s recovery and reconstruction. It allows for the safe return of the civilian population and relaunch of economic activities, notably in the transport, trade, and agricultural sectors.

“We are grateful for the European Union’s help. This equipment will improve the capabilities of our forces and allow sappers to demine de-occupied territories faster and safer. The Russian aggression has left behind many explosive objects in Ukraine, and demining will take decades. Technological solutions will accelerate this work”, said Head of Administration of the State Special Transport Service of Ukraine Major General Bohdan Bondar

“While fighting off the aggressor, Ukraine is at the same time already rebuilding. Its mine action operators are taking on the extremely dangerous but essential task of clearing liberated land from the deadly mines Russian aggressors left behind. We are honoured to make the work of Ukrainian de-miners safer and more efficient with this European equipment. Together we can help save lives and contribute to a better future for Ukraine”, said High Representative/Vice-President (HR/VP) Josep Borrell.

The MV-10 is the only robotic system in the world with double tool: front-positioned flail tool followed by a rear tiller. It is the only demining system in its class that has been verified in the real combat situation. Furthermore, due to its high engine power and supreme explosion resistance, the MV-10 presents the strongest system in its category. The de-mining system MV-10 clears Anti-Personnel as well as Anti-Tank mines and other unexploded ordnance and is notably suitable to treat large areas. Thanks to a remote control it is particularly safe to operate. It can demine up to 4000 sqm per hour, including on steep slopes. This EU demining support also includes a dedicated training course for Ukrainian operators who will work on the MV-10 system. The MV-10 dimensions are within the required limits for various types of transportation, dlivery by various types of cargo planes (e.g. C-130, C-5, IL-76). The MV-10 prime mover could fit into standard 20’ container, while double tool could fit into the second one. Another option is to ship prime mover and tool in one 40’ container.
