As reported by the State Border Committee, on April 2nd, an Ethiopian citizen was detected in a forest near the Belarus-Lithuania border, “The man was unconscious. An ambulance team arrived on call to carry out emergency medical measures. The man was saved and brought to consciousness. To provide assistance, it was decided to take him to the hospital.”

"As informed by the foreigner, Lithuanian security-service agents had taken him and several other people to the border and later, under threat of physical violence and with use of stun guns and dogs, forced him to cross into the territory of Belarus,” the State Border Committee explained, adding that similar facts of transportation and displacement of refugees from the territory of Lithuania had repeatedly been caught on video. In addition, it has become known of refugees’ inhuman or degrading treatment in Lithuanian camps.

The State Border Committee informed on Lithuania’s resumed practice to transport and throw refugees out to the territory of Belarus in late March.
