THE UNITED NATIONS, September 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s intentions to suspend operations of the country’s crossing border points on the state border with Russia will not bring any benefits for either Moscow or Kiev and are likely to trigger escalation of tensions, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexey Meshkov said on Thursday.
“Any proposals leading to escalation rather than deescalation of tensions, always carry certain destructive components along with them,” he said. “Trying to break apart ties and contacts between people is not in the interests of either Russians or Ukrainians," Meshkov added.
On Wednesday, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on urgent measures for protecting Ukraine and bolstering its defense.
In particular, the decree enacts to find a decision on suspension of operations at border checking points on the border with Russia for automobile, marine, pedestrian movements.
Poroshenko also instructed the government to take steps aimed at a unilateral demarcation of Ukraine’s state border with Russia and at providing its proper outfitting.
At the same time, the executive agencies should submit proposals about implementation of special economic and other restrictive measures against the Russian Federation.
