Boundary Markers

Boundary Markers

 

in the USSR, markers designating land-use boundaries. They are usually wooden posts 1.5 m high and at least 15 cm in diameter. An impression of the hammer and sickle and the letters “USSR” are burned into the top of the post. A stone, brick, or piece of glass is placed at the base of the post so that if the boundary marker is lost it can be replaced easily. A flat mound is built up around the post and a small ditch is dug around it. Boundary markers are placed at the turning points of boundaries; where boundaries extend in a straight line for more than 500 m, posts are placed at intervals of 500 m. Boundaries along rivers and lakes are marked only where they intersect land boundaries.
