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, the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko approved the construction of fortifications in the country. Meanwhile, the authorities 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 ".
