August 18: The State Border Guard Service of Lithuania refused to allow a citizen of the Russian Federation into the country whose car was decorated with Soviet symbols, reports BBC Russian Service.
According to the report, a car with Russian license plates was stopped on Monday afternoon at the Bardin border post. The car has a sticker with a five-pointed red star, hammer and sickle.
Border guards suggested the driver remove the sticker or continue his journey on foot. However, he refused and returned to the Kaliningrad region.
Public display of Soviet symbols is prohibited in Lithuania. Display and dissemination of Nazi and Communist symbols in Lithuania faces a fine of 144 to 289 euros.
Recall that the Kiev subway removed communist symbols.
