EU Surprised About Kiev Plans to Spend Loan on Border Wall Construction / Sputnik International

Yatsenyuk inspects a sample section of the proposed border wall between Ukraine and Russia (October 2014, near Kharkiv)

In early April, Ukraine plans to start wall building on the border with Russia. Brussels is not delighted about the fact that Kiev will spend a substantial part of the EU aid package for this purpose.

The construction of the wall on the border with Russia is expected to start early April, but the EU countries are far from being excited about this new project, “Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten” reported.

An agreement with the European Union provides for the strengthening of Ukrainian borders, but not the construction of the wall, spokesman of the European Union Maya Kosyanchich said, cited by the media source.

The intention to construct a wall after the “Berlin model” was announced by the Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk in September, 2014. The politician said that only this way Ukraine can establish a truly national border.
