Poland is building an "electronic barrier" along its Russian border to keep Russian immigrants out
· Apr 19, 2023 · NottheBee.com

The Polish government is on the verge of constructing what the government estimates will be the "best secured" border in the European Union:

Poland has begun building a state-of-the-art electronic barrier at its land border with Russia's Kaliningrad exclave to monitor and counteract any illegal activity, the Polish interior minister said Tuesday.

The barrier, which will be equipped with 24-hour monitoring cameras and motion detectors, will run for 210 kilometers (130 miles) and is due to be completed in the fall.

Polish authorities will have "full monitoring of the border with Russia," Minister Mariusz Kaminski said.

It is worth noting that this is actually an escalation of what Poland started doing less than a year ago:

Whatever the reason, it's clear that this country wants its border to be watertight.

And they seem to understand the value of a well-secured border. Hmm.
