Lithuania has named a condition for the admission of Russians to the Baltic States

Lithuanian Foreign Ministry: In order to be admitted to the Baltic States, Russians will have to speak out about belonging to Crimea. Russian citizens intending to cross the Lithuanian border, in order to be admitted to the Baltic countries, will have to speak out against Russia conducting a special military operation in Ukraine and “recognize” Crimea as Ukrainian.

Otherwise, they will be denied entry. This was stated by Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis. This is reported by TASS with reference to the Delfi portal.

According to the head of the Foreign Ministry, border guards have every right to be interested in the position of Russian citizens regarding Russia’s actions in Ukraine, as well as to specify “whose Crimea”.

“Based on the answer that a person crossing the border of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Poland will say that, in his opinion, Crimea is not occupied, it can be assumed that the admission of this person does not meet the interests of national security,” explained Landsbergis.

Earlier it became known that the Lithuanian authorities advocated a complete ban on the entry of Russians into the EU countries, but would also agree to restrict their entry only to a number of community countries.
