Based on preliminary information from Polish police, Lithuanian police officers found out that a fight involving around 200 to 250 football hooligans from Poland and Russia was planned to take part in a location in the county of Kaunas, the Police Department said in a press release.

The police at around 5 a.m. detained five Polish fans in the district of Lazdijai, at the border with Poland. They had maps with possible locations of clashes and items like gloves, masks, kneepads and other protective equipment, as well as instructions on how to behave in emergencies.

Officers later detained four other Polish citizens on a motorway and took them to the Kaišiadorys District Police Commissariat, the department said.
