A number of Russian trains bearing military symbols have been prevented from crossing into Lithuania, the State Border Guard Service of Lithuania reported on Facebook on Nov. 4.

The Service said that there were three such carriages in one train, and two in another. These supposedly empty carriages were intended to travel to Belarus.

Lithuanian border guards said that these five cars must be detached and returned back to Kaliningrad Oblast, a Russian exclave in Europe, to allow the trains to cross the Lithuanian border.
