Lithuania appointing new defence attache to Russia
Friday, February 3, 2017
Lieutenant Colonel Petras Montvila should be appointed as Lithuania's next defence attache to Russia, members of the parliamentary National Security and Defence Committee confirmed to BNS after discussing candidates on Wednesday.
An incident in which a smoke grenade was thrown at the Lithuanian embassy in Kiev could have been a provocation instigated by Russia, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in Vilnius on Monday.
The Belarusian airspace was last week violated by a light airplane P46T piloted by a Danish citizen that had taken off from the Vilnius airport, chiefs of the Lithuanian state company Oro Navigacija (Air Navigation) and the Civil Aviation Administration.
