Lietuvos Geležinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways, or LG) is scrapping its passenger service between Vilnius and Moscow in a move that is expected to save the state railway company 2 million euros annually, but passengers will continue to be able to take a Russian train to the Russian capital.

Starting next Monday, LG's cars will not be added to the Russian train traveling from Kaliningrad to Moscow via Vilnius.

"We had around 20 passengers on average on the three additional cars. The route will continue to be operated, but we will not add our cars in Vilnius. This will reduce our costs," Linas Bauzys, deputy CEO of the railway company, said in a press release.

LG last year saw the number of passengers on the Vilnius-Moscow service drop by 27 percent compared with 2015.
