The Fund supports Ukraine to fulfil its commitments under the Ottawa Convention and improves regional security for the population. This will be carried out through industrial destruction and consists of three initiatives:
- Initiative A: improve human security by reducing all forms of violence, and work with governments and communities to find lasting solutions to conflict and insecurity through surplus stocks destruction. The destruction of SALW, carried out by a Ukrainian company, consists of dismantling, smelting and recycling.
- Initiative B: the destruction of Conventional Ammunition, carried out by a Ukrainian company, consists mainly of dismantling, recycling, open burning, controlled incinerating and, on rare occasion, open detonating.
- Initiative C: contribute to a fully budgeted plan for the destruction of Ukraine’s entire stockpile of anti-personnel landmines (APL) in accordance with Article 4 of the Ottawa Convention. The destruction work, carried out by a state enterprise, consists of dismantling, recycling and controlled incinerating.
