Documentation for claim

Period/date: 29. August 2016

Debunk claim:

The source for these claims is an interview that Poland’s Interior Minister Mariusz Blaszczak gave to Polskie Radio. Blaszczak never mentions building a wall on the Ukrainian border, what he does say is that Poland will deploy a much larger Polish Border Service than previously and also create a new border defense department: http://www.stopfake.org/en/russian-media-claim-poland-will-build-wall-to-keep-out-ukrainian-migrants/
