Six NATO Countries Announce Drone Wall Defense Against Russia

( – Six of the NATO countries have banded together to come up with a Russian defense: a “drone wall” that would protect their borders from any provocations and would also serve other protective measures.

Lithuanian Interior Minister Agne Bilotaite, who made the announcement, said, “This is a completely new thing, a drone wall stretching from Norway to Poland, and the goal is to use drones and other technologies to protect our borders.”

Bilotaite continued, “Not only with physical infrastructure, surveillance systems but also with drones and other technologies, which would allow us to protect against provocations from unfriendly countries and to prevent smuggling.”

The details for the project, such as funding or a timeline, have not been announced yet, but it’s said that EU funds could play a role in the funding. Finland’s Interior Minister Mari Rantanen said in an interview with Yle, a Finnish television channel, that the “drone wall would improve in time.”

The ministries of the six countries met up in the Latvian capital of Riga to discuss the plan. They spoke of the security threats, as well as non-military tactics, and went over previous instances where Russia sent asylum seekers over country borders, including those from Africa or the Middle East. This has called for better measures to protect and surveil the borders of EU countries that are next to Russia.

“Our goal is to ensure that Finland has effective means to tackle situations where instrumentalized migration is used to put pressure on Finland,” Rantanen said.
