Does Ukraine occupy Russian territory?

The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine has decided to demarcate of the whole border with Russia on a unilateral basis, the head of the NSDC Andriy Parubiy said yesterday. This will mean constructing special facilities and demarcating the Russian-Ukrainian border on a unilateral basis, not only on territories where military activities are taking place, but all over the country.


A project for strengthening fences includes building a solid metal fence with barbed wire in 5-6 months. In front of the fence deep ditches should be dug from both Ukrainian and Russian sides, so that peaceful residents can’t reach the fence.

Moreover, the NSDC discussed prohibiting Russian ships from calling at ports of the Azov Sea and establishing a schedule for crossing the Ukrainian-Russian border only at checkpoints for rail or air transport.

 

 

Russia criticizes such a decision. Vladislav Shurygin, the editor-in-chief of Zhurnalistskaya Pravda, told Vestnik Kavkaza that such arrangements have no legal force and make no sense, as Russia can consider demarcation of the border as occupation of its territory.“Of course, it means that the Ukrainian authorities are absolutely ignorant. Absence of bilateral demarcation and building fences means causing a serious conflict with Russia, including a military one. Demarcation is a bilateral process. Of course Ukraine can do whatever it wants, but in this case Russia can consider the fence illegal and destroy it,” Shurygin stressed.
