KIEV, February 18. /TASS/. The Ukrainian government has been planning to carry through a project that the Ukrainian side named the"European Wall", Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk declared at a meeting of the Ukrainian Cabinet on Wednesday.
"The border infrastructure is being built, and it will have been built. All those who are against the development of the border infrastructure and ensuring the line of security will be offered a one-way ticket to the other side of the state border. This applies to the pro-Russian political forces who have raised their heads in the parliament, the pro-Russian and anti-Ukrainian forces who are attempting to create havoc in the country," Yatsenyuk said.
"The government is to endorse the "European Wall" project in a new edition," Yatsenyuk added. "After consultations, at which ways to reduce the cost of the project will be discussed, we will endorse the project in a new edition," Yatsenyuk said.
Chairman of the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service Viktor Nazarenko told the Cabinet on Wednesday that an anti-tank ditch four meters wide and two meters deep with a total length of 144 kilometers was already built. "Engineering fortifications almost 90 kilometers long have been built," he said.
"A total of 37 block posts, 200 dugouts and other shelters, ditches and communication corridors with a total length of 60 kilometers have been built; a system of visual and technical monitoring facilities has been created; modern modules for the guard service and accommodation of personnel have been created as well," Nazarenko said.
The "European Wall" project envisages development of the fortifications structure on the border line more than 3,000 kilometers long, including a 587-kilometer long line of the infrastructure in the zone of disengagement of the warring sides in the conflict zone, Nazarenko said.
