The length of the fence is reported to reach 3.22 kilometers. The construction aims to prevent illegal activity on Russian-Ukrainian border.

Russia’s FSB border service released an online order for the construction of the protective fence on the most vulnerable spots of the state border in Russia’s Rostov region.

"The construction is designed to curb illegal activities on the state border," the service’s representative told RIA Novosti.

The maximum contract price will reach 9.9 million rubles (about $150 000). The work is expected to be completed by December 1, 2015.

Ukraine Has No Money to Shut Out Russia With Border
Protective constructions on the Russia-Ukraine border have also been built in the past. Authorities created protective engineering constructions stretching 140 kilometers, including 100 kilometers of ditches and 40 kilometers of fences.

Recently, the construction activities intensified amid an increase in attempts to smuggle arms and ammunition. They also serve to prevent illegal crossing of the state border by car.

The Ukrainian government announced earlier plans to build a modern powerful complex of fortifications on the border with Russia. Kiev is planning to implement the initiative in the course of three years, though experts doubt that Ukrainian authorities will meet the deadline due to the high cost of the project ($ 4 billion).
