Baltic Countries

There is an interesting alley in Klaipeda devoted to Baltic Sea with all its coastline countries listed as plaques with names and coastline length in kilometers.
Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.. The only question I have why Lithuania and Russia are skipped? :)
This picture was made during my trip during my stay in Klaipeda on the way to Curonian spit.
