Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk demands from heads of regional state administrations to fulfil the tasks to ensure construction of fortifications on the state border between Ukraine and Russia. He announced on Tuesday, April 21, during a teleconference of the State Commission for Emergency with heads of regional state administrations.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk noted that through May 8-9 "there exist a possibility of direct military intervention, but it is rather low. "Since Russia will have to wait, also for the final decision on sanctions due in June".

However, "it is absolutely correct that it is crucial to prevent diversions", "the threat is rather high," he stressed.

According to the Head of Government among principal objectives is the construction of fortification facilities: "It is the task for the regional administrations the President and the Government gave almost two months ago. We demand concrete results".

"As to upgrading and repair of equipment and purchase of materiel and weapons, not a single day’s delay. We must be prepared for all scenarios", stressed Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
