Roman Starovoit, the governor of Kursk Oblast in Russia, has announced the construction of two lines of defense in the region, on Telegram on Oct. 23. Kursk Oblast borders Ukraine’s northeastern Sumy Oblast.
"This week, the work to supply equipment and build two reinforced lines of defense of the Kursk region is over,” Starlit said.
“The work was carried out together with the Ministry of Defense of Russia and the border management in Kursk Oblast.”
According to Starovoit, a third line of defense will be ready by Nov. 5.
“We are ready to repel any encroachment on our territory," he said.
Previously, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin introduced a medium level of response in the regions bordering Ukraine, in particular in Krasnodar Krai, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh, Kursk, and Rostov oblasts.
Ukraine has not attacked Russian territory, nor has Ukraine’s political and military leadership ex-pressed any desire to do so. Russia continues to occupy Ukrainian territory and shell Ukrainian civilian targets, including schools, apartment buildings, and children’s playgrounds.
