A wagon with a prohibited sign was spotted at the Kena border crossing, the wagon was denied entry into the country and unhooked, LTG Cargo reported on Monday.

“This is the second attempt in the last few days to transport wagons marked with unacceptable signs through the territory of Lithuania between Russia and the Kaliningrad region,” LTG Cargo said in a statement.

The train carriage with the “Z” sign bound for Kaliningrad in Lithuania was not allowed to enter at the Kena point last Thursday as well.

The letter “Z” was used by the Russian army on February 24, 2022, in the full-scale war against Ukraine.

In April 2022, the Seimas adopted amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses and the Law on Meetings, which prohibit the public display of the letters “Z” and “V”, the Georgian ribbon and other symbols of Russia’s war against Ukraine. Such signs are considered propaganda for military aggression and war crimes against humanity.

According to LTG Cargo, only cargo that complies with European Union sanctions regulations can be transported through Lithuania and within the country, and the wagons used for transportation and the inscriptions on them must meet the requirements of international and Lithuanian legislation.
