The head of the Lithuanian government said this in an interview with Radio-R.

According to her, there is a discrepancy between the sanctions between Russia and Belarus - "such infrastructure is subject to sanctions, for Russia the sanctions are tougher than for Lukashenka, so far."

The Prime Minister stressed that Lithuania always advocates for the sanctions to be the same.

Because this is "a certain compromise of sanctions against Russia", when it is very easy to bypass them by using Belarus.

In an interview, Szymanite

described the migration situation.

According to her, now Ukrainians are the largest group of foreigners in Lithuania.

The second group is Belarusians fleeing mass repressions in Belarus, now there are about 50,000 of them.

About 15,000 are Russians, half of whom arrived long before the war.

The Prime Minister of Lithuania says that the Belarusians who came because of Lukashenka's repressions are "very different people who fell into the hands of the KGB or the police, sometimes just for a cardboard box on the balcony in white-red-white colors, and people were a real threat." .

She says that it is never known whether the people who were tortured or "interviewed" have any agreements with the special services.

"It also happens, that's why the Department of State Security is checking people who are now trying to come to Lithuania.

But humanitarian visas still exist because there are still people who face prison and torture.

We consider ourselves a European country, and we are obliged to help," said the head of the Lithuanian government.

As for the Russians who escaped from the mobilization in Russia, Mrs. Shimanita has a different point of view about them.

She believes that it would be wrong to accept them as political refugees.

"Because those people who are OK with Putin's war as long as it is on their TV (then "Russia wins", "we are better than everyone else" and the like), but when the military commissar comes to you and says: you have a gun, whether to rush somewhere in the Luhansk region in front of the barricades without a gun is another matter.

I think it's just fear for my body, not a political position," she says.
