Ukrainian president tells defense ministry to reinforce border with Crimea

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has issued an instruction to the Defense Ministry and the General Staff of the Armed Forces to draft proposals on how to reinforce the border line separating Ukraine and the Crimean Federal District of Russia, a presidential statement said on Friday

"The Defense Ministry and the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have been told to submit proposals on a considerable buildup of Ukraine's fedense capabilities in the Kherson region and along the entire Black Sea coast," the presidential press service said in a press release.

This move is supposed to counteract the Russian Army's growing capability in the republic of Crimea, it said.
