This is reported by the DELFI portal.

According to the initiators of the proposal, this restrictive measure does not propose to abolish the possibility of obtaining citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania, but only to temporarily suspend the acceptance of applications and the adoption of decisions on acceptance of citizenship.

"This measure will not affect the acquisition of citizenship by birthright.

Also, persons of Lithuanian origin or persons who have the right to renew the citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania can come to Lithuania and apply for a permanent residence permit.

Citizens of Russia and Belarus, who already live in Lithuania with a temporary or permanent residence permit, can continue to live in Lithuania, but their applications for citizenship will not be accepted," say Bilatajte




According to Kaschunas, the draft law on the introduction of restrictive measures in connection with military aggression against Ukraine should be adopted by the Diet in the near future.
