The visit is part of a project by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe intended to provide technical and financial assistance to find a suitable way to carry out the disposal of the toxic substance. The explosive missile fuel poses a potential threat to human health and the environment.


Based on the findings and recommendations of the experts, the OSCE will seek extra-budgetary contributions to implement the project.


The project will be managed by the OSCE center in Almaty.
