France-Presse: Kiev is not enough money to dissociate itself from Russia “The Wall”

Of the two thousand kilometers of borders with Russia, Ukraine could strengthen only a few hundred meters, to build a fence of metal mesh.

More than a year ago, Ukraine has announced an ambitious project for the construction of “The Wall” at the border with Russia, but at the moment there were only strengthen a small section of the border, according to Agence France-Presse.

Now checkpoint “Senkovka” in the Chernihiv region only have a few hundred meters from the wire mesh fence. At the same time the length of the Russian-Ukrainian border is almost two thousand kilometers.

Premier Yatsenyuk urged to continue to work on the project, later dubbed the “European tree ‘, while it stressed the need to create a” high-tech “border.

Meanwhile, analysts doubt that Ukraine will be able to bring the building up to the end.

“In the short term, this project will not be easy to implement, especially for economic reasons,” - said political analyst Volodymyr Fesenko, head of the Center for Applied Political Studies “Penta”. “Required huge funds, which Ukraine is now not” - he added.

According to the draft “European Tree” in 2018 on the border between Russia and Ukraine should appear sophisticated defenses using electronic tracking systems.

Work began in September 2014, but because of the exorbitant cost of the construction was postponed. Initially Kiev estimates the cost of strengthening the border of $ 1 billion. Subsequently, the budget had to be reduced to four times, but the funding still has not arrived in time. By delaying the construction led and bureaucratic disputes about which agency should monitor the progress of work.
