Estonia starts fencing itself off from Russia with a barbed wire fence

Estonia began to fence itself off from Russia with a barbed wire fence. According to Egert Belichev, head of the border division of the Police and Border Guard Board, the first 1 km section of the Estonian-Russian border has been developed in southeastern Estonia.


In total, at the first stage, according to the Estonian official, 20,5 km of the border will be built. Currently, work is underway on the first 8 kilometers. As part of the border development program, all the necessary infrastructure is being built: roads for patrolling, communication systems, electricity and sewerage are being laid.

Half of the access roads and a kilometer of fencing are ready. There are elements that need to be added, but the fence itself is already standing

- the official said.

As previously reported, to prevent Russia from entering Estonia, the Estonian side will install an electronic security system and plans to use drones. CCTV cameras and sensor sensors will be complemented by a 90-meter high fence with barbed wire for 2,5 km.

The total length of the Estonian-Russian border is 338 kilometers, of which 135 kilometers are by land, 126 kilometers by lakes, 176 kilometers by rivers.

      Russia should not assume, but proceed from the goals declared by Estonia, and when discussing any indulgences on the part of Russia, always take this fact into account as unfriendly.
      By the way, this also applies to relations with Latvia and Lithuania - 0% transit and no indulgences from Russia.

            Well, back in 1991, right after the collapse of the USSR, this fence was being built ... But somehow the funds "flowed away" quickly. Then they came back to the idea again and again. The Russian border guards, who were tired of catching the smugglers, even asked for funds to be thrown by neighbors for the fence.

        In the early 90s it was. After joining the EU, they fled to the West.
        Emigration from Estonia has not become as large-scale as in Latvia, thanks to a smaller number of Russian-speaking residents, a better economic situation and Finland's proximity, says Professor of the University of Tartu Tiit Tammaru.


        Last week, many were shocked by the news of the Politico portal about the scale of emigration in Latvia. Compared to 2000, the country's population decreased from 2,38 million to 1,95 million.

        Professor Tiit Tammaru, who deals with issues of urban geography and population geography, assures that there has not been such a large-scale decline in the number of inhabitants in Estonia. In 2000, 1 people lived in Estonia, at the beginning of this year - 370 people. It turns out that in 052 years the population has decreased by 1 inhabitants. That is, during this period the population of Estonia has decreased by only 315%, and in Latvia - by almost 635%. According to the professor, in fact, an even sharper outflow of residents in Estonia and Latvia occurred in the early 17s, when part of the Russian-speaking population emigrated from both countries. The next wave of emigration happened after joining the EU: borders were opened, and the difference in living standards was too great. People began to leave from all the countries of Eastern Europe. It was during this period that a lot of residents aged 54-417 left there.



        “Basically, the poorer the region, the higher the emigration rate,” explains Tammaru.

        The proximity of Finland was also a salvation for Estonia. The main destinations for the inhabitants of Latvia were Great Britain, Ireland and Germany, for the Estonians - Finland. “Many work in Finland, but have not moved to live there completely. In contrast to Latvia and Lithuania, the available transport links and the opportunity to work in Finland somewhat defused the labor market and helped to solve the problem of low wages, ”Tammaru says, the main factors that made emigration from Estonia less critical.

          Estonians, of course, are great. Perhaps the most successful post-Soviet country in terms of economy and development. But it is necessary to subtract personal income tax from the average salary and make an adjustment for the price ratio. And 17000 is not a middle class, but deep poverty. It's a shame for our country that there are still such salaries. But now incomes are very different. For example, I have an official at the level of an average Estonian (not a manager) plus side jobs.

          Well, Ivan, let's try to decompose 1496 euros into the cost of energy and heat carriers, income tax, medical insurance and other related items. Here is the maintenance of MY house (not to be confused with a removable one) costs 600-720 rubles in summer electricity (in winter up to 1200r), pumping out the drive once every 3-4 months 800r 6 cubic meters, firewood for the house and a bath with a stock of about 15 cubic meters of chopped (lazy became) 14 thousand. Water is my own. I do not connect gas and central water supply yet, I think economically not profitable Well, there’s also a tax, once a year 1800r together with the land. Now my salary is 21-23 thousand (three days later). I don’t know my wife’s salary (I didn’t ask once, in principle). I can do the same for my son’s two-room apartment. schedule (except salary)
          Here, roughly make the alignment in the Baltic States, then I will believe that we are being deceived by propaganda ..

I buy steamed pork in a farm store for 300 rubles. Potatoes for 15 rubles and bananas for my wife with a child for 70 rubles. Also give the cost of communication - I have Megafon-1500 minutes for any connection, 25 gigs during the day, unlimited at night - for all 480 rubles (20% discount for 14 years of friendship).

                The question is why in the world's largest country with oil, gas, diamonds and all the periodic table, the average salary is several times less than in some kind of Estonia. This question, in the near future, will be more and more categorical. And no "Yyyyy, I have bought a sack of potatoes on the side of my grandmother for 15 rubles, we will fry it with lard, we will not die alive" this question cannot be raised.
                Already in the poor and suffering 404, which has been freezing for the sixth consecutive winter without our gas, the minimum wage is higher than ours (https://lenta.ru/news/2020/08/25/minimum/) - a shame.

      Estonia starts fencing itself off from Russia with a barbed wire fence

      This is most likely so that the Estonians still in Estonia, who did not have time to escape to the West, do not run away to Russia. Such a mini-concentration camp according to the behests of the forest brothers and Hitler's grandfather, only for their own Estonians.

        By the way, as in the case of Ukraine, where they also built a wall at first, and then got a mess from the West to send everyone to Europe and forbid their citizens to go to Russia. They even stopped allowing transport to the East. Here is the same topic. In any case, it looks like.

      According to the Federal Customs Service of the Russian Federation, in 2018 the foreign trade turnover between Russia and Estonia amounted to $ 3,07 billion (in 2017 - $ 2,62 billion), including Russian exports - $ 2,45 billion and imports - $ 616,9 million ...
      The bulk of Russian exports are mineral products, chemical products, timber and pulp and paper products, metals and products from them, etc. Imports are represented by machines, equipment and vehicles, chemical products, metals and products from them, food products and agricultural raw materials and etc.
      There is something to think about about export and import.

    Half of the access roads and a kilometer of fence are ready ... but the fence itself is already in place
    The main fence for 1 km is already standing, and this costs a lot in the literal and figurative sense. Barbed wire and even a laid sewage system will naturally not help against a real Russian threat. But since there is no real threat, it means that you just need to show the "allies" that they are ready for repulsion with roads, communications and sewerage systems. Means what? That's right, the EU needs to fork out because Estonia protects its eastern borders.

    Uzas, what's going on! From the south-west - Rabbit Tyn overhangs, as much as one and a half meters of an impassable fence made of poles with pots on top, from the west, combat sprats dug a ditch of increased obstruction so that the Russian biathlon team would not conquer them in a rage ... The Kaliningrad group in horror shot Iskander in the head.
    Is this, excuse me, what kind of Estonia? Who came to Moscow in the person of the president to beg from Russia to resume transit? Well, now they will definitely resume, yes ...

    The total length of the Estonian-Russian border is 338 kilometers, of which 135 kilometers are by land, 126 kilometers - along lakes, 176 kilometers - along rivers

    That's where you had to start! Yaytsenyuk would have been tortured with envy. Hop! And he mastered the funds for the fence along the bottom of the lake ...

      It is more convenient to dig anti-tank ditches on lakes, the budget is larger.

    Precisely, impoverished Estonians began to flee en masse to Russia. laughing

    The Eurogeans regard the Tribals as second-class people; the Tribals are trying to compensate for this by the appropriate attitude towards Russian natives.

    It is surprising that in Russia there are still light elves who believe in European values.

    However, 2014 is just the beginning of the exodus of sanitizers to their climatic homeland.  laughing

    Oh, how the West accused the USSR of the "iron curtain", relying not only on political issues, but also on the presence of engineering barriers along the borders, and now all over the world, including the USA, Israel, Turkey and the EU countries, are building real migration, prickly, concrete and other curtains.

    Well done. Don't blow out another ditch. If you don't master the moat yourself, then you know who can help you.

    What fast Estonians!
    Okraintsy long ago sawed the loot on a thorn, and it came to these currents that this was possible.
