"The Army with the National Guard support marched from south to north and from north to south this night in order to cover that part of the border that remained open after massive terrorist attacks. I think that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will cover the state border by tomorrow. All roads will be under APC's fire search, so if the militants attempt to cross the border, they will be destroyed," he said at the press conference.
The militants suffered heavy losses from the Ukrainian forces during this operation, Gerashchenko added
Earlier, the head of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration Ihor Kolomoiskyi offered to build a 1920 km long fortified wall along the border with Russia.
