In a joint declaration on Sunday, the Baltic states, Norway, Finland, and Poland unveiled plans to erect a "drone wall" along their shared frontiers with Russia.

The technology, according to Estonian Interior Minister Lauri Läänemets, is designed to detect and deter drones. He further revealed Estonia's intention to establish this barrier along its entire eastern boundary and around its key cities.

Läänemets stated, "As we can see on the Ukrainian front, there is a constant technological race between adversaries and new ways to use drones in warfare. The same is true for the various drones that people have access to. Being even a small step ahead of the opponent leads to greater success, but this success can be measured in days, as countermeasures are discovered with alarming speed for each measure, and the cycle continues."

He emphasized the necessity of this move, noting that even the smallest drones have demonstrated their value as reconnaissance and offensive weapons. This announcement follows Russia's recent declaration of its intention to alter its maritime borders in the Baltic Sea. Lithuania's foreign minister last week labeled it an "obvious escalation" that necessitates an "appropriately firm response."

The Russian Defense Ministry proposed an update to the coordinates used to delineate the strip of territorial waters off its mainland coast and its islands in the Baltic Sea. The ministry claims that the existing coordinates, approved in 1985, were "based on small-scale nautical navigation maps," and do not reflect the "modern geographical situation."

Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson reminded that Russia had signed a United Nations convention regulating such changes. "Both we and Finland assume that Russia – which is a signatory party to that convention – lives up to that responsibility," he said, as reported by Swedish news agency TT.

Finland’s Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen warned that if Russia were to challenge borders, it would be in violation of a U.N. convention and would face global opposition. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, however, insisted there was "nothing political" in the Defense Ministry’s proposal, citing escalating tensions and confrontation levels in the Baltic region as justification for the necessary security measures.
