Lithuania declare more than 1,000 Russians, Belarusians as threats

Lithuania declares more than a thousand citizens of Russia and Belarus living in the country to be threats to national security.

The move comes after the government asked the Russians and Belarusians to answer a questionnaire that included questions about their views on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the status of Crimea.

The Migration Department said that it had established that 1,164 people posed a threat to national security; 910 of those were Belarusian citizens and 254 Russian citizens.

According to the Migration Department, how people answered the questionnaire was taken into consideration in deciding whether to grant or deny residence.

More than 58,000 Belarusian citizens and 16,000 Russian citizens are currently residing in Lithuania.
