(Worthy News) – It’s shaping up to be far less imposing than the Berlin Wall and not nearly as politically divisive as President Trump’s coveted barrier between the U.S. and Mexico, but Finland’s planned border fence with Russia looks to be a major geopolitical statement.
The wall could fuel even greater tensions between the Kremlin and the West while signaling that Russia’s war in Ukraine may have forever altered Europe’s attitude toward its hostile neighbor.
Finnish border guard officials have announced that they will begin construction in the spring on a nearly 2-mile stretch of fence along the Finland-Russia border near the eastern town of Imatra, according to Euronews and other media outlets. Beyond that initial construction, Finnish leaders this month proposed spending up to $143 million to build many more miles of fence along the boundary with Russia that eventually would stretch well over 100 miles.
