"Our goal is clear. It is to give the government and people of Estonia Europe’s most modern border infrastructure built for the centennial of the republic. To that end, an additional 55 million euros should be allocated from the state budget to the 20 million euros already invested," Pevkur told lawmakers.
The minister added that construction of the Piusa border crossing began last year. Construction of the Narva post finished last year further northeast.
The Estonian government launched plans to reinforce the country’s 210-mile border with Russia in 2014.
