Lithuanian authorities are planning to deploy a fleet of engineering equipment on part of the state border with Russia. According to the Lithuanian broadcaster, the facilities are needed "to stop the possible movement of the enemy."

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė visited Klaipėda to discuss strengthening border security with Russia. The official held meetings at the Lithuanian State Border Guard Service and the Coast Guard unit that was reconstituted this year.

It is reported that Lithuania will continue repairing and installing patrol routes on the border with Russia. It will also update its border surveillance systems, drone systems and anti-drone capabilities, strengthen cooperation between border guards and the Lithuanian army, and organize joint exercises.

The Baltic states, in view of a possible Russian invasion, have begun to strengthen a thousand-kilometer stretch of their eastern borders. They are building the so-called Baltic Defense Line, which consists of barriers and bunkers. Each bunker will have an area of about 37 square meters, will be able to accommodate about 10 soldiers, and will be protected from artillery strikes.

According to the Lithuanian Ministry of Internal Affairs, the state border with Russia is controlled by surveillance systems, including places where there is no physical barrier. This part of the border is guarded by the Pagėgiai Frontier District and the Coast Guard Detachment.

The length of the border between Lithuania and the Russian Federation is 30 km of land, 206 km of river and 30 km of lake territory, and there is also a 22 km section of the interstate maritime border.

Since September 2022, the Lithuanian authorities have officially banned Russians from entering their country on any Schengen visa.

As reported, Lithuania will help Ukraine build a number of new schools underground. The projects will be implemented in Odesa, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Sumy and Chernihiv regions. Another bomb shelter school may be built in Kharkiv region. All facilities will be built from scratch.
