‘We checked and measured each boundary marker in the terrain, and all data, such as maps and boundary marker descriptions, were updated and digitalised', says surveyor counsellor Pekka Tätilä.

The demarcation was technical, and nothing changed about how the border runs.
Finland and Russia have agreed on doing the demarcation every 25 years in the future.
