Latvian Ministry of Defense: Modernization of the border with Russia will strengthen the country's security

Today, the Minister of Defense Artis Pabriks, Minister of Transport Tuls Linkits, Secretary of State Dmitry Trofimov, Head of the State Border Guard General Guntis Puyats, representatives of the Ministry of the Interior and other Latvian officials visited one of the modernized sections of the Latvian-Russian border. It is reported by the press service of the Latvian Defense Ministry.


Pabriks believes that border violators are also watching the rapid development of technologies, they cannot be stopped, creating only physical obstacles for them. Therefore, he is pleased to see the results of using modern means to strengthen the eastern border. According to the Minister of Defense of Latvia, the measures taken contribute to strengthening the country's defense capability.

The defense department of this Baltic state believes that the border of Latvia with Russia and Belarus is not only the eastern border of the country, but also the external border of NATO and the European Union.

Latvia has been actively engaged in strengthening and modernizing its border with Russia since 2015. One of the measures to protect the border was the construction of a 93-kilometer fence with barbed wire 2,7 meters high. The total length of the Russian-Latvian border is 283,6 kilometers.

        This is unlikely. After all, the fence is 93 km long. The Baltic states have mastered. If Yatsenyuk were in the contractors, then they would be limited to "hundred-metering" as in dill. yes

    Latvia has been actively engaged in strengthening and modernizing its border with Russia since 2015. One of the measures to protect the border was the construction of a 93-kilometer fence with barbed wire 2,7 meters high.

    The result of this active activity was the detention in 2019. the former head of the State Border Guard of Latvia, General Normunds Garbars, and two other people in the case of violations discovered during the arrangement of the Latvian-Russian border.
    The deputy head of the Department for Armaments, Provision and Technical Resources of the Main Border Guard Directorate, as well as the former head of the Border Guard Normunds Garbars and two other representatives of the road construction enterprise were detained. The grounds are suspicions of crimes committed in the process of arranging infrastructure on the Latvian-Russian and Latvian-Belarusian borders. In 2015, the State Border Guard concluded an agreement with Igate on the construction of infrastructure in the border strip. In October 2017, the government allowed the Ministry of the Interior to make long-term commitments in order to allocate EUR 2017 million to the project from 2020 to 31 "to strengthen the border of Latvia with Russia and Belarus."

    Strictly speaking, wire fences are also used here. And quite effective, as they are studded with sensors and video cameras throughout. The tanks really won't stop either.
    The difference is one: we do not scream about the intention to attack us by all means and preparations for an attack from all sides. We just see it .... unfortunately.

      So this fence is studded with sensors and cameras, not against tanks, against gray smugglers of sole persons (normal smugglers are working with customs) and illegal migrants. One such from Africa walked along the Russian coast of a 5-meter river for several hours, until it was detained by Russian border guards. As he explained: “I wanted to get into the European Union, but I did not know if there were crocodiles in the river!”
      And the minister’s statements are the political rhetoric of a worthless official. To listen to this - do not respect yourself!
