based servers," Aram Sargsyan, deputy head of international business development at Yandex.Taxi, told the Lithuanian delfi.lt news website.

He says consumer data is stored in compliance with the requirements of the European Union and producers of mobile devices.

According to Sargsyan, service algorithms' connection with servers in Russia does not mean consumer data is sent there.

Yandex.Taxi continues to claim it is ready to provide any information to Lithuanian officials but says it has not received any requests yet.

Earlier in the day, Lithuania's National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) warned that the Yandex.Taxi ride-sharing app regularly sends sensitive consumer data to servers in Russia. Therefore, NCSC advises against using this app.
