Law enforcement services have taken additional security measures in the districts of the Rostov region bordering on Ukraine, Rostov Region Governor Vasily Golubev told residents of Donetsk in Russia's Rostov region on Monday.
"Law enforcement services, including the Defense Ministry, are strong enough to protect our citizens in the border districts," Golubev said.
He said he had issued the order to attach more Cossacks to police patrols in the border districts.
Golubev also said that shells launched from Ukraine sparked off fires on an area of 400 hectares.
"Our farmers have lost about 18,000 tonnes of grain. We are weighing plans to compensate these losses," he said.
Golubev also issued the order to restore civil defense infrastructure in Donetsk.
