Poroshenko wants Ukraine-Russia border fence

Ukraine president says border must be under his country's control before any ceasefire can be offered.

    Ukraine's president has proposed building a fence along the Russian border, as border guards come under nightly attacks with civilians often caught in the middle.

    Petro Poroshenko says the border needs to be under Ukrainian control before any ceasefire will be offered to pro-Russian separatists.
