Lithuania to demarcate its border with Russia
15.07.2011 06:45

This week Lithuania starts demarcation of its water border with Russia, the Baltic state’s border service said.

The first demarcation sign will be installed on Lake Vistytis in the municipality of Vilkaviskis. Twenty three swimming border signs will appear on the lake. Lithuania will also demarcate Matlaukis water reservoir. While Russia will do the work on the Curonian Spit.

Lithuania’s border service reports that multiple fishermen and tourists violate the border without demarcation signs and cause problems.

In the nearest future the Baltic state plans to begin land demarcation with Russia’s Kaliningrad region.

The Russian-Lithuanian border (Lithuania borders only Russia’s Kaliningrad region) stretches over 294.4 kilometers, land and inland water borders make 253.7 kilometers. The border across the Curonian Spit runs across 18. 5 kilometers and across the Baltic Sea – 22.2 kilometers.
