Poland will begin construction of a special electronic barrier on the border with Russia’s Kaliningrad Oblast in March, press secretary of the Polish Border Guard, Anna Michalska, told Polskie Radio on Feb. 6.

According to her, the system will use sensors and cameras, which will make it possible to control the border around the clock, regardless of weather conditions and without the need to have personnel patrolling the demarcation line.

“Thanks to this system, officers can observe the border from the headquarters of the border agency,” Michalska said.

“The detection systems will send warnings, and the algorithms for these messages will be designed so that the border guard has to respond only to real attempts of border crossing by people, and not animals.”

Michalska noted that the radio-electronic system will operate at about 200 kilometers of Poland’s land border with Kaliningrad.

On Oct. 2, it was reported that Poland has finished the construction of a 187 kilometers long, 5.5 meters tall wall on the border with Belarus. The fence is made of steel panels with barbed wire at the top.
