The Ukrainian authorities failed to achieve any success in the construction of a wall on the border with Russia, said the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Mustafa Nayem, the TV channel «112».

In his opinion, the requirement to allocate additional funds for this project was not justified, as the Ukrainian Parliament still has not shown any calculations and required documentation.

«I know there’s some mythical project that I haven’t seen as many do not see that you need more money,» — said Nayem.

He also noted that before we talk about additional funding, you need to report on what was spent the previous amount.

Earlier, the Deputy Minister of internal Affairs of Ukraine Vadym Troyan stated that the development of the state border between Ukraine and Russia don’t manage to finish due to insufficient funding.

In 2015 Kyiv approved the plan for the project «the Wall», providing for the construction of powerful fortifications on the border with Russia. Later, the project was renamed the «European Val». Its implementation was originally planned to spend 4.1 billion hryvnia (about $ 160 million at current exchange rates), however, the funding for 2015 and 2016 was cut by more than half.

Last summer, in the Kharkiv region was visited by the deputies, which found that «strong fortification» is just a garden lattice. The Prosecutor’s office brought in connection with this criminal case.
