"Our assistance to the security agencies of Ukraine is about $ 33 million now and we are considering a far broader program of assistance until the end of this year. We will mainly co-work with the Border Guard Service in the direction of denying the possibility of crossing the border by vehicles, people etc. I may not disclose the details but I can assure you that the American experts working with the Ukrainian Border Guard Service conscientiously deliver all the necessary cutting-edge technology and equipment," he said.
According to Payette, U.S. efforts to strengthen the Ukrainian border are fulfilled together with the EU. "They launch a joint project with the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine and in this sense we are working hand in hand with Brussels," the Ambassador said.
