His first trip from Konstantinopol to Ochakov and back in 1784 had a reconnaissance character. During his second visit in 1786-1787 he supervised the rebuilding of Ochakov fortess. Being in the district for the third time he carried out his project into practice – to build up the fortifications of Izmail. Moreover, Lafitte proposed to the «lurks the projects on the fortification of Khadjibey (now Odessa) and Berezan island, bu.1 the plans hadn’t been put into effect.
