According to the speaker of the State Border Guard Service Giedrius Misutis, a Lithuanian citizen with the Wagner symbols on his backpack wanted to fly to London.
And at Vilnius airport a man was seen with the symbols of the Wagner PMC on his backpack. The man was fined and was unable to fly out of Lithuania. The Lithuanian portal Delfi writes about this on December 28.
Press secretary of Lithuanian Airports Tadas Vasiliauskas said in a comment to reporters that the man was not found to have anything threatening to aviation, but because of the symbols on his bag, it was decided to contact the police and the State Border Guard Service.
“We are against the use of such logos and do not approve of such behavior of the passenger, but our security specialists in all cases must act in accordance with the laws of the Republic of Latvia; in this case, the logo on the backpack could not be an obstacle to stopping the passenger or his luggage, or prohibiting his departure,” – Vasiliauskas noted.
The spokesman for the Lithuanian State Border Guard Service, Giedrius Misutis, said that the person in question was a citizen of Lithuania and was planning to fly to London. The man was fined for displaying prohibited symbols and was unable to board his plane.
“After drawing up a protocol and all procedures, he will be released,” added Mishutis.
