KIEV, April 22. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s State Border Service (SBU) is getting ready to impose control on the border between Crimea and Ukraine’s Kherson region, SBU spokesman Oleg Slobodyan told a news briefing on Tuesday.
Slobodyan said this decision had been made following Russia’s plans for the development of the Russian-Ukrainian border after the recent accession of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol to Russia. According to Slobodyan, frontier posts will be replaced with border check points if the Ukrainian government makes such decision.
On Monday, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed the new head of the country’s border development state agency to oversee the development of border infrastructure between Ukraine and Russia, in view of the latter’s merger with Crimea and Sevastopol.
On Monday, Konstantin Busygin assumed the post of the head of the Federal Agency for the Development of the State Border Facilities of the Russian Federation (Rosgranitsa).
“The first instruction issued by the Russian prime minister for Rosgranitsa head Konstantin Busygin was to immediately start the development of the Russian and Ukrainian border considering the recent merger of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia,” Medvedev’s spokeswoman Natalia Timakova said.
