Ukraine will use echelon cover tactics to protect border guards and will allow to open fire, Interior Minister Denys Monastyrsky announced.

"In order to properly respond to the migration crisis, a meeting of the National Security and Defense Council was held. The aviation of the Ministry of Internal Affairs is involved in the duty - it is up to 15 helicopters, two planes, 44 UAVs. Command and staff exercises have been conducted," Monastrysky said.

Up to 10 potential sites with a total length of about 270 km have been identified.

In the event of a threat to the life and health of border guards, all appropriate and statutory means of protection will be used, including firearms.

"Before the protection of the state border, we will use the tactics of echelon cover: the first echelon will be without weapons, only with protective equipment. In case of aggressive actions of border trespassers, the use of the necessary special means and weapons is envisaged for the second echelon," the minister added.

Earlier, it was reported that Ukraine should be ready to impose a state of emergency in the border areas due to migrants from Belarus at any time.
