The publication says that the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) were going to install these barriers in the Zaporozhye region. We are talking about a territory that is still under the control of kyiv. “The (Ukrainian) Cabinet of Ministers did not provide funds for this,” the journalists noted.

Furthermore, there is not even a document with a budget. Therefore, it is too early to talk about the distribution of budget money for strengthening purposes.
A month ago a tender was announced for the purchase of 45,000 concrete barrier pyramids. But the client could not find 88 million hryvnia ($2.3 million), so the tender was canceled.
