"If we do not get any alternative agreements with the United States, Russia, Europe separately and the Normandy format in parallel. If all this fails, the people of Ukraine will vote on the wall," Zelensky said.

According to him, if Ukraine still has to build a wall to fence off Donbas, it will be for many years

It should be noted that this is not the first time when authorities talk about the construction of a wall in eastern Ukraine.

In 2019, it was reported that there was the idea to build the wall in Donbas if the peace issue would not be solved in a year.

As a reminder, in 2014, the-then Ukrainian Premier Arseniy Yatsenyuk announced the beginning of the construction of a physical border between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. The construction was supposed to be completed in 2018, but the deadlines were extended to 2021. Now it is planned to postpone the implementation of the Wall project for another 4 years, that is, by 2025.
