ICRC also gave 1200 warning sings “Danger! Mines” to Donetsk authorities. Those sings will be enough to mark the territory 30 km long.

Below is the video taken from the place where one of the warning sings was installed.

This area is very dangerous in terms of mines and there are lot of them on the roadsides. In the last 6 months there were 15 accidents particularly in this area and one of them was even deadly.
