"The development work is being conducted as allowed by funds allocated. This year, we were allocated up to 200M hryvnia ($7.69M). We are conducting the development works, finishing them in the Kharkiv region and have started work in the Luhansk region," First Deputy Head of the State Border Service of Ukraine Vasyl Servatiuk told journalists in Kyiv on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
He noted that criticism towards development works on the state border of Ukraine is only partially grounded. At the same time, the border official acknowledged that "only 12 percent of the entire Ukrainian-Russian border has been developed - this is very little."
