Starting this year, Ukrainians will mark the day of the Border Guard on April 30 annually. President Petro Poroshenko signed the respective decree on Friday. The document is timed to the centenary of the Ukrainian Border Guard.

According to the head of the state, 70 servicemen of the border guard lost their lives since the beginning of Donbas conflict in April 2014.

Recently, Ukraine’s army was placed 29th in the Global Firepower ranking, which is, according to Poroshenko, a good argument for this country to join the NATO.
