Russia is building on the border with Ukraine “foolproof”


On the procurement website appeared a tender for the construction pyatidesyatimetrovoy fence on the border with Ukraine. It is anticipated that the fence will separate KRASNOPEREKOPS’kyi district Crimea from the territory of a neighboring state. The fence will cost the Russian Treasury of 200 million roubles, and it is planned that work on its construction will end this year. So what we decided to protect itself from its neighbor?

The land border of Crimea with Ukraine according to its length is relatively small — only together with crevices and shallows less than 200 miles, 50 of which are now planned to protect the wall from the side of Russia. On top of a fence strung with barbed wire, and install aluminum canopy. It is expected that this obstacle will be insurmountable for trespassers. The fact that this border area has become increasingly flickering in the news. Through it, the perpetrators of the crime, trying to leave the territory of neighbouring States, and more than once in the Crimea from Ukraine tried to break through the subversive groups.

Director of the Foundation of progressive politics, Oleg Bondarenko in an interview with “MK” pointed out that such a measure is, in principle, can benefit from “fools”. “On a national scale the construction of such a boom is worth a penny, and the effect of this really is. We have had incidents when our people were detained because they crossed the border, we have repeatedly detained citizens of Ukraine”. The expert believes that provocations on the border will continue for a long time, so this simple measure will help to protect the border from them.

We will remind that the head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov has called the border areas of the Peninsula — a hotbed of extremism, although in the Crimea, the situation is labeled as calm.
