Ukrainian opposition: “Wall” will stop only the hare
The execution of the Wall project was announced by Kiev in 2015. It was assumed that the perimeter of the border with the Russian Federation will be equipped with powerful defensive structures. Subsequently, the project was called the "European shaft". Its implementation was assumed for four years. Pledged value was 4,1 billion hryvnia (approximately 160 million dollars at the current exchange rate). Subsequently, the funds allocated were more than halved, but funding continues. So, on August 7, the State Border Service of Ukraine reported that in the 2017 year it could receive 19,5 million dollars for these purposes.
As he believes, "The Wall" "can only delay a running hare or a roe." Boyko stressed that during the implementation of the project several criminal cases were instituted, the first of them - already after 4 a month after the start of construction.
