Russian FSB officers ‘mistakenly’ cross border with Lithuania
Two FSB border officers armed with pistols mistakenly entered Lithuania where they were detained by local border guards, LNK TV channel reports. The Russian officers ‘made a mistake’ and got 500m inside the Lithuanian territory.
Deputy Head of the State Border Guard Service of Lithuania Vidas Machajtis said that Russian citizens entered the territory near the village of Nida. Lithuanians found them using video surveillance systems. The detainees explained that they had entered Lithuania trying to find the violators and did not know that they had left the territory of Russia. FSB officers have already been handed over to Russia.
