During the work on one of our researches we faced different interpretations regarding the length of Ukrainian borders in open sources and also found no data about length of lines of delimitation with the occupied territories of Crimea and eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Therefore, “Europe without barriers” requested the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine for the data on length of the land and sea borders of Ukraine, as well as of administrative border with the occupied Crimea and demarcation line in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
The source of information is the response of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine to the request of “Europe without barriers”.
