Two major train stations in Lithuania, one in its capital, Vilnius and another in its suburb, Naujoji Vilnia, have been shut down and cordoned off by the country’s military after a train full of young people from Russia entered the country
“There was a suspicion that there are military personnel in the train,” the spokesman of the Lithuanian Border Guard Service, Rokas Pukinskas told Baltische Rundschau.
He added that “a signal was received” that a large group of young people is heading into Lithuania by train.
However, the train only contained Russian students who were heading to a maritime college in Kaliningrad through Lithuania, Rokinskas admitted:
“Our employees checked the train, but all the passengers had valid documents and visas. We have no complaints against them, we can’t not let them through our territory.”
