Vladimir Putin

Meeting of the State Border Commission

"Under the Federal Targeted Programme we have allocated considerable resources to develop the key sections of the state border. The creation of the border infrastructure in the North Caucasus, where the terrorist threat is particularly high, has practically been completed. Seventy-two border posts, seven border offices, housing and social amenities have been built there from scratch. I deliberately give you the figures to emphasise the scale of the work done - it is very large."
