The 2018 World Cup in Russia will require new stadia, and one of them is in Kaliningrad. The 35,000-capacity stadium is still under construction and we saw everywhere signs (in red) showing “Russia 2018”. While Kaliningrad is often described as an exclave of Russia, it is in fact a semi-exclave, which means that it is separated from the rest of the country by other states (Lithuania and Poland) and yet has its own coastline (on the Baltic Sea). The city and the province are named after Mikhail Kalinin (1875-1946), a Bolshevik revolutionary and Soviet bureaucrat. Full article on Kaliningrad – Russia’s exclave

Poland to Build Watchtowers Along Border with Russia’s Kaliningrad

NATO member Poland will build observation towers along its land border with Russia’s exclave of Kaliningrad, according to Polish news agency PAP. The six towers ranging in height from 35 to 50 metres will ensure round-the-clock CCTV monitoring of the 200-kilometre border with Kaliningrad. Russia is said to be stationing short-range Iskander missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads in the region of Kaliningrad. PAP quoted a Polish border guard service official as saying they are currently in the test phase of the technical installations of the towers and plan to have them fully operational by June. Then, video information from the towers will be streamed to Polish border control posts. The EU’s External Borders Fund will provide 75% of the estimated cost of the project of over PLN 14 M (EUR 3.4 M). Poland’s border with Russia is part of the external border of the European Union. The construction of the towers comes at a time of mounting tensions between NATO and Russia over the conflict in Ukraine. Kaliningrad, wedged between Poland to the south and Lithuania to the north and east, is home to Russia’s Baltic Fleet.
