Estonia intends to build a fence along its border with Russia to provide protection against border violations, according to Ukraine Today.

The fence will be complete with barbed wire, video cameras, and drones, covering two-thirds of the Estonian-Russian border, according to the Russian-language Latvia-based Meduza ezine, Ukraine Today reports.

Despite high cost (EUR 71 million), Estonia is boosting its security measures amid Russian aggression in the region as Moscow continues with its missile, ground, and air exercises near Eastern Europe, according to RFE/RL.
