As Ukraine erects defenses critics fear expensive failure

first_img HOPTIVKA, Ukraine (AP) — The flimsy, razor wire-topped fences popping up along bare expanses of Ukraine’s eastern frontier are the first line of defense against a much-feared Russian invasion. Trenches fortified by timber have been hollowed out for soldiers to take up positions. And bulky, metallic obstacles looped together with more barbed wire are laid across the fields to halt advancing tanks and infantry. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility A little more than a year and-a-half ago, the very idea of creating such fortifications — reminiscent of World War I trench warfare — would have struck many as perverse. But the project was announced with fanfare in summer as fighting against Moscow-backed separatists reached peak intensity. In December, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that the program, dubbed “Project Wall,” would cost almost $520 million and take four years to complete.Now doubts are creeping in.With much of eastern Ukraine in the hands of Russian-backed separatists, large swaths of the border remain impossible to secure — meaning enemy troops can just sneak in through areas under rebel control. And cash-strapped authorities have already had to revise budgets downward, so there’s little money for building defenses.The project is for now centered on the Kharkiv region, which lies north of the conflict zone and shares a 315-kilometer border with Russia. To insulate that region from any separatist offensive, another layer of protection is being built on the frontier with areas under rebel control.Views are mixed among residents in the city of Kharkiv, the regional capital, about the wisdom of building defenses. Sponsored Stories Quick workouts for men Some in the economic powerhouse of 1.4 million people embrace the idea, and look with distress to the fate that befell the neighboring, mainly Russian-speaking Donetsk and Luhansk regions. More than 6,000 people have died to date as a result of fighting between government and rebel forces.“We need to protect ourselves somehow,” said Sergei Kotlyar, 46. “But, of course, this won’t give us 100 percent guarantees, even if it holds back the enemy for a little time.”Others believe investing in fences and trenches is a waste of money, noting that anti-tank defenses will be of limited use against the rocket launchers widely deployed over the course of the war.“Who is it going to stop?” said 22-year old Kharkiv resident Anatasia Duda. “A country like Russia definitely has the means to deal with slabs of metal. And what’s the use of that wall when the border with Donetsk isn’t even under control?”In earlier times, lines separating the republics of the Soviet Union were viewed as little more than a formality, so families and communities straddled inconspicuously across borders. On paper, that changed with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

(AP Photo/Inna Varenytsia) Comments   Share   With the government forced to cut costs across the board as the economy struggles under the weight of war, the budget for the project has been reduced twofold.But Raynin insists the project is still sound.“This has been done in such a way that the quality of the wall will not suffer adversely,” he said.___Peter Leonard contributed from Kiev, Ukraine.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Top Stories But scant security along the 2,300-kilometer (1,400-mile) demarcation between Russia and Ukraine has for two decades ensured a smuggler’s dream. Farmers and their livestock blithely crisscrossed in areas where it has never quite been entirely clear which country one was in.Separatist fighters in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions have exploited the porous borders, moving about with ease. Ukraine accuses Russia of pouring its own army’s equipment and manpower across the border to assist rebel offensives. Moscow dismisses all satellite imagery and anecdotal evidence underpinning those claims.Ukrainian border guards fought bitterly to keep the frontier sealed against overwhelming odds.“We know from the experience of fighting in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions that fire comes from the neighboring state (of Russia) without them having to cross the border,” said Oleksandr Kruk, head of the Kharkiv regional division of the border service.On top of creating physical barriers, Ukraine is also fortifying obstacles of red tape to deter the numerous Russian citizens known to have voluntarily joined forces with local separatists.Rules for crossing official frontier points have been stiffened. In Hoptivka, people stand impatiently in crowded and slow-moving lines to get into Russia for work or to visit relatives. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Russian citizens can only enter Ukraine on their international travel passports, whereas they could formerly sail through with their national ID cards. Closer checks by border guards have also slowed things down.Fifty kilometers (30 miles) of fences have already gone up, but not without complications. The exact coordinates for the location of the fence are hard to fix since the process of demarcating borders after the collapse of the Soviet Union was never properly completed.Rather than wait around for a laboriously negotiated agreement, Ukraine’s security leadership last June unilaterally marked out what it sees as the country’s eastern limits.Although it is illegal to own property within 50 meters (yards) of the border, people near the new fences have been granted control over the land all the same, said Kharkiv regional government Igor Raynin.“We are not prepared to tell people that this was not done properly and to confiscate land through the courts,” Raynin said.The fortifications under construction go further back than the immediate line with Russia itself. Trenches, shelters and parking areas for armored vehicles have been built along highways running southward from Russia past Kharkiv, a hive of Soviet-built industry.

like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh This change in tone is evidentthroughout the Hindi beltfrom symbolic gestures like the distribution of free skullcaps and burqas for the Muslims attending his public meetingsas seen in Jaipur and Bhopal a few weeks ago In Augustthe Modi government told the Supreme Court that it was willing to pay for the repair of the 535 mosques and dargahswhich had been damaged in 2002 In factthis new dispensation has been obvious in Gujarat for at least two years now Modi first established a channel of communication with the Dawoodi Bohras He has paid their leaderSyedna Mohammed Burhanuddina courtesy visit and inaugurated the communitys trade exposition in Ahmedabad Thenhe tried to reach out to the Sunnis through his Sadbhavana Missionwhich he launched in September 2011on his 61st birthday The aim of the mission was to promote social harmony beyond casteclass and religious divisions In order to solemnly commit himself to this objectiveModi travelled throughout Gujarat and undertook fasts in various places His last Sadbhavana fast was in February 2012 Muslims attended these functions in somewhat large numbers In Ahmedabadan imam offered Modi a skullcapwhich he refused to wear In Navsaria few days laterone of his Muslim supporters offered him a keffiyeha scarfwhich he refused again One may remember that in December 2002Atal Bihari Vajpayee had hosted an Eid milan at his residenceand an iftar party the year before At the end of the Sadbhavana MissionModis ability to reach out to Muslims was doubtful Indeedaccording to a CSDS survey conducted after the 2012 state elections20 per cent of the Muslim voters had chosen the BJPagainst 22 per cent in 2007 While a substantial proportion of Muslims was voting for Modiit seemed to have reached a plateau Naturallythe memories of 2002 have played a role But other explanations need to be factored in Like the Dalits and Adivasisthe Muslims have not benefited from Gujarats development as much as other groups either The Sachar Committee report has shown that Gujarati Muslims lag behind in terms of poverty and education But it was based on data that had been collected in the early- and mid-2000sonly a few years after Modi came to power To take stock of the impact of his policies on Muslimsone needs to look at up-to-date data The 66th round of the NSS of 2009-10 can help us in this endeavour It shows that the share of urban Muslims who are salaried employees remains much lower than the corresponding figure for Hindus: 349 per cent against 448 per centwhereas the proportion of Muslims who are self-employed is much greater492 per cent against 366 per cent This over representation of Gujarati Muslims in the informal sector continues to be related to their low level of educational attainment In the age group of 5-14-year-olds787 per cent of Muslims go to school There is no improvement over the 2004-05 NSS roundfor which the corresponding figure was 789 per cent and was almost at par with the statistic for Hindus But when Muslims turn 15the dropout rate is such that in the age group of 15-19-year-oldsthey lag behind the Hindus by 10 percentage pointswith only 32 per cent still in school The Muslims of Gujarat continue to be poorer than the Hindus and poorer than in most other Indian states The Planning Commissionon the basis of data collected in 2009-10pointed out in 2012 that in urban areas the percentage of Gujarati Muslims living below the poverty line was 424 per cent Not only is this higher than the national average by 10 percentage points but it is also higher than the comparable figures for West Bengal (349 per cent) and Rajasthan (295 per cent) The percentage of Muslims living below the poverty line in the rural areas in Gujarat is not very different from West Bengal: 314 per cent compared to 344 per cent In the villages of Gujaratthe poverty of Muslims is largely due to the fact that they own little land 70 per cent of rural Muslims own less than 04 hectareagainst 555 per cent of Hindus In spite of the poor educational attainment of Muslimsthe Modi government abstained from distributing scholarships that the Centre had designed for them in the wake of the Sachar Committee report Only Muslim students who had secured 50 per cent marks in their annual exams and whose family had an annual income of less than Rs 1 lakh were eligible for this pre-matriculation scholarship The amount of the scholarship was between Rs 800 and 1000 per year In Gujarat55000 students were eligible The Centres contribution was supposed to amount to approximately Rs 375 crore and that of the state to about Rs 125 crore The Modi government refused to pay on the grounds that the scheme was discriminatory vis-à-vis other poor students The matter went to the Gujarat High Courtwhere a division bench of three judges ruled in favour of the scheme Lateranother bench overruled the earlier judgment Finallyit went to a full bench of five judgeswhich ruled in favour of the scheme In responsethe Modi government appealed to the Supreme Courtwhich upheld the final decision of the Gujarat High Court in May 2013five years after the scheme had been initiated There is another reason why Gujarati Muslims did not significantly shift towards the BJP in 2012: the party did not nominate a single Muslim candidate This was one of the reasons why the Muslim leader of the BJP minority cell resigned during the election campaign But when the BJP did give tickets to Muslim candidates during local electionsthe party failed to attract voters in Muslim majority constituencies This is evident from what happened in Junagadh in 2009 when the BJP lost the local elections In such constituenciesthe Muslim voters turned to the Congress and the BJP sometimes alienated its Hindu voters Modi may face the same dilemma during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections: either he tries to woo Muslim voters (who may not support him eventually) and risk losing some Hindu supportersor he follows the polarisation strategy till its logical conclusion PS: The BJP is distributing burqas to Muslims even though Modi criticised the Congress for its burqa of secularism.an
