Russian Mapmakers Thwart Baltic Efforts to "Grab" Extra Land

The Russian Federal Surveying and Cartography Agency has completed work on a map designating Russia's borders with the Baltic states. This was announced yesterday by Alexander Krayukhin, the general director of the state mapping association.

'During our work it was very difficult to agree on borders with Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania,' said Krayukhin. 'These states did everything possible to 'grab' a little of the border for themselves. There were arguments quite literally over centimetres. We had to dig up documents from our archives, where everything was clearly defined.' Krayukhin said that work was now underway with other CIS countries: Ukraine, Kazakhstan and countries in the Caucasus region.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
