Latvia begins construction of border fence

Hmm, doesn't President Obama believe that border fences don't work?

Courtesy of Newsweek here is an update on a story I blogged about this fall.
Latvia is building a fence across almost a third of its border with Russia, Eugenia Pozniak, a representative from Latvia’s Border Guard Service told the BBC's Foreign Desk.

According to her, the project on reinforcing the border with Russia was planned in the beginning of 2015 and on construction officially began on Monday.

"The protection is needed in specific segments, covering an area of around 90km out of the total 270 km," Pozniak said. According to her the length of each segment would be between two to five kilometres.
