Iceland provides equipment for Ukrainian EOD teams

Iceland, together with the Nordic countries and Lithuania, has since March this year been leading an EOD training programme in Lithuania. Iceland has decided in connection with the training to provide roughly 50 million ISK worth of basic EOD equipment for the Ukrainian teams that can be used during the training and later brought back with the teams to Ukraine.

The aim of the EOD training programme is to enable the Ukrainian military to detect and destroy unexploded bombs in Ukraine following Russia's invasion, with unexploded bombs of various kinds believed to be present in up to a fifth of Ukrainian territory. The training is part of strengthening Ukraine's defence forces and reducing the risk of harm to the civilian population.
