Bracing for Russian military exercise, Lithuania puts up a border fenceBy Andrius Sytas RAMONISKIAI BORDER CROSSING POINT, Lithuania (Reuters) - Lithuania has began constructing a two-meter high wire fence along its border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad ahead of military exercises Moscow is planning to hold there in September. While the 45-km-long (30 mile) fence will provide little defense against a full-scale attack, it aims to prevent provocations and incidents, Lithuanian Interior Minister Eimutis Misiunas said on Monday. "In order to avoid such situations, we decided we need the fence", Misiunas said at the groundbreaking ceremony.
