OTHER U.S. SUPPORT

With funding from the Department of Defense, the United States provided $322,000 for CWD in other European countries.

  • Azerbaijan: U.S. Army Europe and USEUCOM conducted training and provided Azerbaijan’s National Mine Action Authority with vehicle-towed detection systems to complete the remediation of a Soviet-era bombing range and return land to civilian use.
  • Cyprus: USEUCOM worked with the Cyprus National Guard to provide PSSM to reduce the likelihood of additional unplanned explosions of munitions. USAREUR conducted an EOD Level I train-the-trainer event which will increase the capacity of the Cyprus National Guard to conduct basic EOD skills.
  • Estonia: USEUCOM completed a site visit for a future underwater dive train-the-trainer event with the Estonian Rescue Board.
  • Moldova: USEUCOM partnered with Moldova for the fourth year to provide EOD Level I train-the-trainer engagements. Renovations on the Moldovan Engineer Battalion began in 2017 and will be completed in 2018, significantly increasing the effectiveness of future humanitarian mine action training.
