Details: In the village of Nova Buda, two workers of the Teterivskyi forestry department drove into an unverified forest area, where their truck hit a landmine.

The 52-year-old driver died on the spot, and his 48-year-old passenger was hospitalised with multiple head, chest and leg injuries.

Also in the Brovary region, a man had fingers torn off due to the explosion of a dangerous object found in the area where the fighting had taken place.

Kyiv Region Police urges citizens to be careful in the territories that have been liberated from the Russian occupiers.

Quote: "Make sure you know what your children are doing in their free time. Do not use forest roads and trails. Only visit places inspected by law enforcement officers and follow the instructions of explosives technicians and rescuers."

On 19 April, in Irpin, Kyiv region, a "KamAZ" truck exploded after hitting a landmine, killing the driver.
