 Ukrainian territory will be patrolled exclusively by Ukrainian citizens - Turchynov

Patrolling the Ukrainian territory can be conducted exclusively by citizens of Ukraine - the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine or employees of the Interior Ministry.

This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov, Censor.NET reports.

According to him, some media reported on "joint patrols of the temporarily occupied territory by Ukrainian and Russian troops."

"This information is not true. We do not believe it is possible to patrol the Ukrainian territory together with those who illegally crossed our border bearing arms," he said, adding that the Ukrainian security forces have sufficient power to provide patrols "in any part of our country."
