Security specialists have identified that this app demands access to sensitive consumer data and sends them to address in Russia.

NCSS head Rytis Rainys says there are no technical means to say how many people use this app in Lithuania.

When Yandex.Taxi launched operations in Lithuania three months ago, there were suspicions that its executives had ties with people close to the Kremlin, and that's a threat to national security, Yandex.Taxi representatives denied it.
