Lithuanian authorities have also included on its persona-non-grata list Aleksandrs Kuzmins, aid to MEP Tatjana Zhdanoka (Latvian Union of Russians).

The two were detained by Lithuanian authorities in Klaipėda, where they were scheduled to attend some sort of conference on "Ethno-nationalism".

Kuzmins has since returned to Riga, while Korens is still in Lithuania and wishes to receive the full decision by Lithuanian authorities so that he could immediately appeal this decision.
