Boundary demarcation between Russia and Lithuania has been finished in Russia’s westernmost Kaliningrad region after nine years of work, a TASS correspondent reported from the town of Nesterovo where the last, 572nd, boundary marker was placed on Monday."The boundary demarcation is actually over. Documents will be finalized within a year. We have reached a phase of normal partner relations [with Lithuania - TASS] and have no disputes about the border," Kaliningrad governor Nikolai Tsukanov said at the ceremony.
The Kaliningrad region is Russia’s westernmost exclave encircled by European Union states.
