Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said an effective system of fortifications must be built in Donbass, the presidential press service reported.
"A highly effective multi-layered defense system must be created shortly, with due account taken of our experience in building fortifications, dugouts and strongholds," Poroshenko told regional administration heads.
All regions must be involved, he said. "Each region must play its role in building fortifications, if we do not want to get confronted with the enemy on the limits of our cities," he said, adding that each region will be responsible for its workload.
The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, high-level law enforcement officials and ministers.
