The latter was stated by D. Tymchuck on his Facebook page
“Unfortunately, the carried out activities are not as efficient as we would like – especially because of the constant strengthening of terrorist groups with fighters and weapons from Russia. Equipping them with means of air defense significantly reduces the efficiency of aviation” – Tymchuck writes.
Simultaneously, State Border Service collected a number of volunteers to reinforce units operating in the border area of Russia. 200 people with the appropriate military accounting profession (MAS) have already been recruited. They are currently restoring skills-based training center DPS, then they will be sent to different parts of Ukraine-Russia border.
In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and State Border Service are conducting strengthening of administrative border areas of Kherson region with Autonomous Republic of Crimea. Armoured vehicles are involved in strengthening the departments.
Also steps to enhance the protection of the Azov Sea have been taken. Currently there are 5 State Border Service patrols in the marine zone, and 2 more are in store. The direction of the sea from Genichesk to Mariupol and Novoazovsk is fully controlled
