VILNIUS, May 4. /TASS/. Russian national has been detained on espionage charges in Lithuania, the country’s Prosecution Service said on Monday.
The man was arrested for three months following prosecutors’ motion approved by the court.
"So an attempt was averted to get information available only for the country’s leadership so as to wield influence on the decisions Lithuania makes at the highest level," the Prosecution Service said.
The suspect can face up to 15-year imprisonment on these charges.
Russia’s embassy to Vilnius has refrained from comments until more details are revealed.
