VILNIUS, May 5. /TASS/. Lithuania will allow Russian diplomats to gain access to a Russian national suspected of espionage, the Baltic republic’s Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius told reporters.
"Lithuania’s Foreign Ministry is mediating organisation of the suspect’s meeting with the Russian consul," Linkevicius said.
Earlier in the day, the country’s Prosecution Service announced that a Russian national had been detained on espionage charges.
The man was arrested for three months following prosecutors’ motion approved by the court, it said.
"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.
Russia’s embassy to Vilnius has refrained from comments until more details are revealed.
