DSGU thanks you for the support. Post the Kharkovka dam collapse, we focus on UXO safety in Mykolaiv, educating locals on explosive risks and securing agricultural areas. Your assistance matters!
The destroyed dam in the Kherson region is a catastrophe for obvious reasons. A less obvious catastrophe is all the exploding ordonnances that are being carried with the river.
On behalf of the entire team at DSGU, I want to take a moment to express our heartfelt thanks for your generous donations and continued support.
According to a UNDP report, DSGU and Demining Solutions have cleared 20% of Ukraine in 2022. Proud of the result, we will continue to work for Ukrainian citizens.

Last autumn we helped to renovate some houses in Chernihiv so that they were ready for winter. We owe an update on this.
As the year comes to a close and we welcome 2023, the team at Danish Support Group Ukraine would like to extend our sincere thanks for the generous contributions we have received in 2022
The continuous search for funding and explosive ordnances.

Urgent topics are being discussed today at the Homeland Security Conference at DanskErhverv.
Here at home, we are still in the process of finding funds for our project to prolong the effort.
We talked about the importance of doing something, rather than just talking about it. We are on the move as some of the first, we are on the ground and we are acting!
The robots are named after the two politicians, because both Uffe Ellemann & Mogens Lykketoft...
For a long time, DSGU, together with Damasec, have been testing two demining robots prior to their journey to Chernihiv Oblast
DSGU is a combination of many partners and passionate individuals.

We started this NGO with a long-term perspective! We know that in crisis situations like this, initially there will be a lot of people and states that will help, but interest will decrease over time.
In cooperation with our Ukrainian subcontractor, we are conducting refresher training for a 5-person team.
ICOR has chosen to donate 2 robots to DSGU to help with demining in Ukraine.
The aggression of the Russians has caused great destruction. One of the cities hit hard is Chernihiv. Here, DSGU has collaborated with a local association to get the houses ready for winter.
Since the start of the war, Mykolaiv has been under heavy attack from the Russians.
We have meetings with the authorities that operate in the area, as well as with the other organizations that are on the ground.
It is impossible to handle a task of this size alone and without passing on information, skills and capacity regarding mining and disposal of unexploded ordnance.
A very generous donation enables us to continuously solve the task and potentially scale.
We will send Andy Gleeson off to Ukraine to meet with all the contacts we have.
Through Bevar Ukraine, we have had an ongoing dialogue with the Ukrainian authorities, and to round it off, it made sense to have a meeting with the Ukrainian Ambassador and defense attache.

Bevar Ukraine (Save Ukraine in Danish) is an association mainly consisting of Ukrainians living in Denmark. They have worked purposefully to provide support to Ukraine since the war broke out in 2014
In order for us to get started quickly, it makes sense to form a partnership with a company that has solved similar tasks.
Up to 30% of the ammunition used by the Russians does not detonate as intended. This can be due to errors in production, errors in operation or other factors.
