Jul 17, 2023

The Lithuanian State Border Guard Service is currently monitoring the situation around the movement of the Wanger group to Belarus but sees no reason for any additional actions to protect the border.

This was stated by the spokesperson of the department, Gedrius Mishutis, Delfi reports.

"The protection of the border with Belarus has now been further strengthened due to illegal migration and the NATO summit, so the level of surveillance and vigilance is high," Mishutis said.


According to him, the agency will continue to monitor the situation.

"But so far there are no signs that anything needs to be done," Mishutis added.

The leader of Wagner's group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, was exiled to Belarus after he ended his armed uprising last month.
