The Seimas of Lithuania adopted an amendment to the law, which prohibits professional military personnel of the Lithuanian Army from leaving for unfriendly countries. Exceptions are, among other things, business trips.

About this informs Delphi.

78 parliamentarians voted for this amendment, none voted against and none abstained.

As the former commander of the army, a representative of the ruling conservatives, Arvydas Potsius, explained, some military personnel have permits to work with secret or top-secret information, and therefore their visit to these territories is a potential danger.

Next, the government must approve a list of countries or territories to which the military will be prohibited from entering.

In early December, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania announced that it had a preliminary list of such countries. It includes Russia and its occupied Crimea, as well as Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, the Transnistrian region of Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The ban will come into effect on January 1, 2024.

We will remind you that the President of Lithuania called on the world to seek the return of Ukrainian children kidnapped by Russia.

Lithuania also called to limit the possibilities of Russia and Belarus to achieve their political goals through Interpol.

Earlier, Lithuania was reprimanded by the EU for insufficient assistance to Ukraine in resisting Russian aggression.
