 Yatsenyuk Visited Construction Site of “The Wall” on Russian Federation Border: This Is Our Protection Against Aggressor. PHOTOS

Ukraine did not have the equipped border with Russia during its independence. The Cabinet launched "The Wall" project after the conflict in the Donbas.

Prime Minister Yatsenyuk writes about it on his page on Facebook, Censor.NET informs.

"Those, who do not like the wall as the name of the project, may call it the 'European Bulwark'. In fact, it is the equipment of the European Union eastern border. What are our goals? The first one is to stop illegal immigration. The second one is to stop subversive groups. The third one is to stop smuggling. The fourth one is stop movement of weapons. The fifth goal is stop movement of radioactive materials. The sixth and the basic one is that no one will provide us the visa-free regime with the EU if there is no border. The issue of Ukraine's membership in the Alliance cannot be solved as well if there are no boundaries," Yatsenyuk said.

In addition, he stressed the importance of building the Wall in terms of the national defense.

"Finally the equipped border - this is our line of defense, which will provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the first line of protection against the aggressor, which is the Russian Federation. Currently, we are announcing the public tender to attract the Ukrainian enterprises to the construction as well as to give jobs to the Ukrainians. More than 1,100 people have already agreed to participate in the project, as of today," Yatsenyuk stated.
