Details: On 6 June, in the Polissia hromada [community], despite a ban on entering the forest and warning signs, locals went to collect firewood and set off a mine.

 

Quote: "Fortunately, no one was killed. The people received minor injuries. Once again, I emphasise the danger of mines in territories that have been liberated [from Russian soldiers]. Take care of yourself and your loved ones."

Background: While martial law is in force in Kyiv and Kyiv Oblast, civilians are prohibited from visiting and entering the forest.
