    After the construction of security measures on the border with Russia’s Kaliningrad region, Polish soldiers began erecting fortifications on the border with Belarus. The information was shared on social media by Minister of National Defence Mariusz Blaszczak.

    “The construction of fortifications on the border with the Kaliningrad region began in February. Today, soldiers began putting up fortifications on the border with Belarus. This is part of our defence and deterrence strategy,”

    Błaszczak wrote yesterday (March 9). 

    Earlier in February, construction of similar defences began on the border with the Russian Kaliningrad region. Even earlier, at the beginning of November last year, the army started building a temporary concertina barrier on the Polish-Russian border. The structure is being erected at the request of the Border Guard.

    Since November 2020, the military has put up a temporary concertina fence on the Polish-Russian border following a request from the Border Guard. At the start of February, Lt. Anna Michalska, a spokesperson for the Border Guard, stated that the building of an electronic barrier along the border with the Kaliningrad region should commence in March.
