EN: The so-called "Molotov Line" was a system of fortifications built by the Soviet Union in the years 1940-1941, along its new western border after it annexed the Baltic States, Eastern Poland and Bessarabia. This territorial expansion was the direct result of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact, signed on the Soviet side by Vyacheslav Molotov, hence the name Molotov Line. The name is informal and has come into use relatively recently. It was popularised by the writings of Viktor Suvorov, notably by his book Icebreaker.
Each fortified region (in Russian ukreplennyi raion, or UR) consisted of a large number of concrete bunkers (pillboxes) housing machineguns, antitank guns and artillery. The bunkers were built in groups for mutual support, each group forming a centre of resistance. A dedicated military unit was permanently assigned to man each region.
When Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941 during the course of Operation Barbarossa, most of the line was not yet finished, and hence posed a negligible obstacle to the invading forces. Only the four southernmost regions, partly completed, were able to hamper the advance of the Wehrmacht for a few days.
In Lithuania the line was divided into four fortified regions:
1. Telšiai fortified region (line from Palanga to Judrenai, 75 kilometers, 8 centers of resistance, 23 bunkers built and 366 under construction on June 22, 1941).
2. Šiauliai fortified region (line from Pajuris to Jurbarkas, 90 kilometers, 6 centers of resistance, 27 bunkers built and 403 under construction).
3. Kaunas fortified region (line from Jurbarkas to Kalvarija, 105 kilometers, 10 centers of resistance, 31 bunkers built and 599 under construction).
4. Alytus fortified region (line from Kalvarija to border of Belorussia 57 kilometers, 5 centers of resistance, 20 bunkers built and 273 under construction).
Overall 101 bunkers were built, but not fully completed, in Lithuania. They were built badly however and were neutralised quickly by throwing grenades or burning fuel into periscope shafts, which were absolutely unprotected.
