Since 2014 - strengthening of military components in agency's system, adaptation of the existing system to conditions of special period (warfare)BACK
After the Revolution of Dignity, border guard agency needed radical changes.
The necessity to improve security of the state border was caused by:
"Hybrid" war on the east;
threats of territorial integrity, independence and existence;
threat of separatism and international terrorism;
intensification of smuggling of weapons and means of terror;
threat of illegal proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and environmentally dangerous substances.
In this extremely difficult period, the border guard agency has been headed by Colonel-General Viktor Nazarenko.
Operative and military border units have been created. This units took under the control boundary line of temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
