“No way we’ll have any wall. The statement on its building is very strange. It looks like Ukrainian politicians are competing in creativity,” Purgin told reporters, referring to Yatsenyuk’s statement on the construction of “an actual state border with Russia.”
According to the DPR vice premier, it is unclear how Ukrainian troops intended to penetrate into the militia-controlled territory. In view of the counteroffensive this looks like “an absurd utopia,” he said.
On Wednesday, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Yatsenyuk said Ukraine was going to begin the construction of an actual border with Russia. “We are beginning the ‘Wall’ project. This is the construction of an actual state border between Ukraine and the Russian Federation,” Yatsenyuk said.
