In the Belgorod region on the border with Ukraine built «zasechnaya line» for the purpose of «defense». This was announced by the governor of the Belgorod region Vyacheslav Gladkov.
«Together with Vladimir Bazarov and representatives from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, as part of a weekly detour, they inspected the progress of work on the construction of the Belgorod border line», — he noted, adding that the work is being carried out in accordance with the previously approved schedule.
During a press conference on November 21, Gladkov announced the creation of a new Belgorod & # 171; security line & # 187; – by analogy with the defensive line of the X-XVII centuries, which was once used to protect the Russian kingdom from Tatar raids.
- At the end of October, Gladkov said that anti-tank pyramids, known as «dragon's teeth», began to be installed in the region.
- Similar structures construction began in the Kursk region.
