During a working visit to the Kharkiv region, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky reviewed the process of building defensive structures and fortifications near the border with the aggressor state – Russia.

"The Kharkiv region is a very important direction. We have to be prepared. And Russians must see that we are ready to defend ourselves. And our people must understand that Ukraine is prepared in case the enemy tries to attack," the Head of State emphasized.

Head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration Oleh Syniehubov noted that the fortifications consist of an extensive system of trenches, dugouts and other types of shelters. Barrier lines are being set up in the region: concrete pyramids, dragon's teeth, and anti-tank ditches.
