“Pavel Zarubin and his crew were included into the list of undesirable persons because of the threats to national security,” – confirmed a representative of the Department of State Security Vytautas Makauskas on Wednesday.

According to him, a total of 4 people were included in the list on Wednesday.

The information was also confirmed by journalist Bozhena Rynska on her Facebook page.

The journalist of the Russian state TV channel “Russia” Pavel Zarubin said by phone that they are under the supervision of migration officials, who made it clear that Russian journalists have to leave Lithuania with the next flight to Moscow.

“The official reason – a possible threat to national security,” – the journalist said.
