Lithuanian Consulate in Kaliningrad refused a visa to a Russian citizen whose place of birth, the Republic of Crimea, was named part of Russia in his passport.

As reported by Censor.NET, this is announced by Interfax citing the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry press officer Kęstutis Vaškelevičius.

"A citizen of Russia addressed our consulate to issue him a facilitated transit document. Our decision was to refuse the facilitated transit document, and the citizen was informed of this yesterday," Vaškelevičius said.

The Lithuanian Foreign Minister published a photocopy of the document in his Twitter suggesting the passport was issued in Dec. 2013.



"In accordance with the law of the European Union, a facilitated transit document is equated to a Schengen transit visa, and in accordance with the Visa Code, there is a legal basis to refuse a Schengen visa if there are reasonable doubts as to authenticity of the document or reliability of its content," Vaškelevičius added.
