Medininkai

On my way from the old border crossing at Medininkai to the new border crossing along the A3.
I follow the path along the Lithuanian fence, observed by many cameras. No one intervenes yet!

The same pattern as I saw before: a Lithuanian pile, a small marker of the real border and after that, the Belarusian pile.
Go with the mouse over the picture to see the details of the Belarusian weapon.

Now with camera.

... and even more cameras.
To make all these pictures, I had to lift my own camera over the fence.

Again the same protocol: one border marker, two piles, three cameras.

Picture taken from the path along the fence. It makes clear that there is a huge fence!
III-1 20140407 The fence
This fence was built with EU-money to avoid smuggling and illegal entry of the European Union. The fence is rather new, I think it was built some years ago. Lithuania entered the EU however in 2004 yet.

Some hundreds of meters further I found the 1074-pair.
There is one advantage of this border: you don't need a detailed map to find it!
III-1 20140407 Mast with camera
And again a mast with camera.
III-1 20140407 Closer look
A closer look at the camera. Actually, there are two cameras! A colleague of mine said the second camera is an infra-red camera to discover illegal border crossing in dark.
Go with the mouse over the picture for some more details.
III-1 20140407 Camera out of the fence
The path gets narrower. I see a camera placed out of the fence.
I was here now for almost an hour and I had expeced a border guard would show up to inform what I am doing so close to the gate. If some one has to watch the monitors connected to those cameras they surely would have noticed me. But no one there. Only me.
