The frontier became approx. 20 kilometres longer, because modern measurement techniques are more precise than a few decades ago. Now, the frontier is 1,343.6 kilometres long. The frontier is still in the same place, but now even its smallest bends have been documented.
Finland and Russia have agreed on doing the demarcations every 25 years in the future. Finland already has such an agreement with Sweden and Norway.
