KIEV, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s state border service has announced tightening control over the state border and has pledged to “ensure the rule of law on the border by all means available”.
The border service warns it is ready “to use firearms” if necessary, the agency’s press service said on Friday.
“All border detachments are prepared to protect their territories from any form of aggression,” it said. “It should be noted that military camps and border checkpoints are border guard posts. And in the event that they are seized or blocked, the border guard will act according to the situation and will accomplish the tasks set to the fullest extent.”
“If necessary, according to the law of Ukraine and Ukraine’s Armed Forces regulations, the border guard will have to use firearms,” the agency added.
