KIEV, April 17. /TASS/. Residents of Ukraine’s Kharkiv region have started the construction of 14 fortifications in the Luhansk region, Kharkiv region governor Igor Rainin said during the inspection of one of the facilities.
"We’ll build the first such stronghold before May 1, and the Kharkiv region will be the first among all regions in Ukraine involved in the construction of such strongholds," the Ukrinform news agency quotes Rainin as saying.
He noted that the concrete structures for the construction of fortifications in the Luhansk region were made by Kharkiv enterprises.
Earlier, Rainin said that more than 30 fighting positions would be built on the border between the Kharkiv and Luhansk regions.
According to Ukrainian Vice-Premier Gennady Zubko, the construction of fortifications in eastern Ukraine should be completed by mid-May. Prime-Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said the government would allocate 860 million hryvnias (about $37 million) for the purpose.
