An elettric circuit

There exists an electric circuit that has an interruption. The -proper- length of the interruption is $L_0$. A tract of electric wire runs along the circuit with speed $v$. The -proper- length of the wire is $L_0$ too. In circuit reference system wire length is $L<L_0$, so the circuit is never closed. In wire reference system interruption length is $L<L_0$, so at some instant the circuit is closed. How can you explain the apparent contradiction?
