What has caused these borders to form like this?
Weird borders general.
>What has caused these borders to form like this?
Not to be an asshole here, but the answer is pretty obvious if you know anything about the european military history of the last few hundred years.
There's a small piece of Russia inside Belarus, no fucking idea why.
Ir's pretty logical. Catholic and protestant landowners refuding to give up their feudal lands.
Pretty cool history, but it was a disaster for customs authorities.
There was a bar with a Belgian and a Dutch entry where a table was placed right on the border. The "smugglers" simply had a drink together and put the contraband on the bartable. Even today the Dutch side has sexshops while the Belgian shop has fireworkstores, with different laws being difficult to maintain.
India-Bangladesh I think you mean
>enclave in an enclave in an enclave
What kinda border u want?
Just fuck my precolonial feudal treaties up
Somebody could explain why this part is still russian?
Pretty much this. And the fact that the Limburgers took every opportunity to distance themselves from 'Holland' didn't really help either, the absolute madmen just decided to be Belgian at some point
