'Newsweek' reports that NATO's front-line states that border Russia are preparing for a potential war with Moscow. In January, defense ministers agreed to a new plan to build extensive fortifications meant to stop a potential Russian incursion which has been feared across northeastern Europe. . Estonia, one of the countries included in the plan, shares a 210-mile border with Russia and will install some 600 bunkers meant to prevent an invasion. The war in Ukraine has shown that taking back already conquered territories is extremely difficult and comes at great cost of human lives, time and material resources, Susan Lilleväli, undersecretary for defense readiness at the Estonian Defense Ministry, via 'Newsweek'. Susan Lilleväli, the undersecretary for defense readiness at the Estonian Defense Ministry, discussed the $64.7 million project during a February 8 press conference. In addition to equipment, ammunition and manpower, we need physical installations to defend our countries efficiently, Susan Lilleväli, undersecretary for defense readiness at the Estonian Defense Ministry, via 'Newsweek'. According to Lilleväli, the planned Baltic defensive line is part of NATO's updated "forward defense posture and deterrence by denial" approach. These installations serve, first, the purpose of avoiding military conflict in our region, as they could potentially change the enemy's calculus, Susan Lilleväli, undersecretary for defense readiness at the Estonian Defense Ministry, via 'Newsweek'. Counter-mobility and fortification measures have played a significant role in wars in our region in history, for example in Finland, and as the war in Ukraine has demonstrated they are perfectly valid also in this century, Susan Lilleväli, undersecretary for defense readiness at the Estonian Defense Ministry, via 'Newsweek'. 'Newsweek' reports that prototypes for the bunkers are currently being constructed, with testing set to commence this year and installation beginning in 2025
