This is reported by Censor.NET citing the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine.
Kenneth Myers, Director of the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), visited the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service (SBGS) in Kyiv on Sept. 23 to oversee the transfer of eight hydraulic telescopic excavators worth $1.9 million. The excavators will be used to build defensive security earthworks on Ukraine's borders.
Myers also inspected other equipment that DTRA has transferred to the Border Guards earlier.
Since April 2014, DTRA has provided nearly $40 million worth of operations equipment and training to help the Border Guard Service respond quickly to emerging border threats and to secure Ukraine's borders, including in areas where little or no border security or infrastructure previously existed.
"This has been critical in the face of Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea and its ongoing destabilizing activities in eastern Ukraine," the U.S. Embassy stressed.
