The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers adopted a conclusion on the reduction of costs of the project " the Wall ", for example, Kiev did not want from the idea of building a Solid 300-kilometer fence in the Kharkiv region, said the Ukrainian media.
"I think in the near future in the framework of the project "the Wall" will start. But as long as Kharkiv border guard carries out work on their own, "said the Ukrainian edition of "News" the chief of the Kharkov frontier group Alexander Kruk. They say that every day the guards are clearing the ditch was dug in the autumn, sagged in a few places after the winter), restore the buffer strip (should be done once a quarter, not overgrown with grass and had traces) and install the Fence that has already produced Kharkiv " enterprise of a name of Frunze ".
"These four and a half miles of fence were purchased through funds that the regional Council has allocated in the past year for engineering support. In addition, this plan is additionally provided money for the purchase and construction of 10 kilometers of the fence. The fence will be equipped to cover the crossing points of the right and left (now at the checkpoint goptivka) and other dangerous areas. A solid fence, as was planned before, will not be, " said Kruk. He noticed that the Fence is a physical barrier system, without which work package does not become effective." of course, your own outfits, patrol dogs, so I Think the fence makes sense, " said Vasilenko. The construction of the "Wall" was broken down into several stages until 2017." 1st - this equipment is anti-tank ditches, development of the buffer strips and the erection of fortifications for border duties. The second is to install a metal observation towers with observation devices and the deployment of additional offices to increase the density of border protection (will be in five villages in the border areas), " says Kruk. The guards emphasize that at this stage faced with a problem." To put the tower, and they are heavy, fifteen feet in height, you need a big crane. For this reason will lie in the warehouse, as long as the crane is not there ", - they report in the unit. Remember, first Director of the national Council DND Andrey Burgin said that the construction of fortifications for Kiev is an attempt by bureaucrats to make money, not to reinforce the defence. At the end of February the Commissioner of Central engineering troops of the military power of Ukraine Vadim Sakado stated that in the area of conducting military operations entirely built two lines of defense, third line will be held by the administrative boundary line with the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. In March this year, Poroshenko approved the construction of fortifications. At the same time the Ukrainian authorities have decided to postpone the implementation of the project "the Wall" on strengthening the border with Russia, since the contractor has already approved of the project was the Ministry of infrastructure of Ukraine, But later "the Wall" was transferred to the State border service. In early fall of last year about the start of the project "the Wall" said the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk. However, the Kiev experts have told that the plan Yatsenyuk is just an excuse for jokes, and the project will turn into an ordinary " cut ".
