In the period of November 5–21, 15 representatives of the SESU, the State Transport Special Service and the Armed Forces of Ukraine will study and graduate from international level. The courses of EOD specialists have been initiated by the Office of Defense Cooperation of US Embassy in Ukraine within the framework of the Humanitarian Demining Program of the United States Armed Forces Command in Europe in order to increase the safety of the local population from mine-explosive risks. It should be noted that the Office of Defense Cooperation provided material assistance in the form of engineering equipment for a total amount of more than 500 thousand dollars.

Five representatives of the pyrotechnic units of the SES of Ukraine in Rivne, Khmelnytsk, Cherkasy, Chernihiv oblasts and Kyiv City will take part in the training. The training will take place in two stages - theoretical and practical. Foreign instructors will teach the pyrotechnicians of the SESU how to use the equipment provided to search and dispose of explosive objects.
