The Government of Ukraine will adopt a new edition of "the European Rampart" program of the state border of Ukraine. Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said this at a Government meeting on Wednesday, February 18.

The second security line, according to him, is "the European Rampart" along the state border of Ukraine.

"I would like to inform all the pro-Russian forces, the European Rampart is being built and will be built. The security line is being built, operating, and we will not allow terrorists, mercenaries, bandits and other sponsors of Russian terrorism transferring weapons, crossing the state border, crossing the security line and sending reconnaissance and sabotage groups there," Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed.
