    Kiev expects delivery from the United States of two border control systems by the end of this year and another six in 2016, according to the first deputy secretary to Ukraine’s Security and Defense Council, Oleh Hladkovskiy.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – Ukraine expects to receive two aviation border control systems from the United States by the end of the year and another six in 2016, the first deputy secretary to Ukraine’s Security and Defense Council, Oleh Hladkovskiy, said Monday.

    "We expect the delivery of two border control systems by the end of this year and another six in 2016," Ukraine’s Security and Defense Council’s press service quoted Hladkovskiy as saying during his visit to Los Angeles.

    The US Aeroscraft will provide the new systems that have an early warning system to control border regions around the clock and identify the movement of enemy aircraft.

    Hladkovskiy is on a state visit to the United States with Col. Gen. Viktor Nazarenko, head of the Ukrainian state border service.

    Aeroscraft’s so-called Elevated Early Warning System (EEWS) boasts expanded air and surface reconnaissance capabilities, as well as target tracking and identification, according to the corporation. The choice of system was explained by its apparent cost effectiveness and simplicity in integrating with existing systems and technology used by the Ukrainian border service.

    The corporation’s chief executive, Ukrainian emigre Igor Pasternak, said he was "proud" to be working with Ukrainian security partners in supplying surveillance equipment to border areas.

    Hladkovskiy's announcement comes against the backdrop of a number of Russian civilian airlines being denied access to Ukrainian airspace, as of October 25.
