Lithuania blocks Kaliningrad-bound train wagon with letter Z from entering

A train wagon with the letter Z painted on it had to be uncoupled from a Kaliningrad-bound train at the Kena railway border checkpoint in Lithuania, State Border Guard Service reported on Friday.

It said the freight train arrived from Belarus at around 2 p.m. on Thursday, and border guards noticed that one of the wagons had the letter Z, used by the Russian army, spray-painted in grey on the side of it.

Lithuanian officials uncoupled the wagon and did not allow it to enter Lithuania.

Lithuanian laws prohibits the public use of symbols of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes that have been used or are being used by those regimes to promote military aggression, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed or being committed.

The Latin letter Z, which the Russian alphabet does not have, has been repeatedly featured on Russian tanks that invaded Ukraine.
