Lithuania to start confiscating cars with Russian license plates

Lithuania has reminded that the country will soon start confiscating cars with Russian license plates. Vehicles registered in Russia must leave Lithuania and the entire territory of the European Union by March 11 this year.

It is also possible to re-register such cars in Lithuania. This was reported on the official website of the Customs of the Republic of Lithuania.

If people who own cars with Russian license plates fail to do so, they will be considered lawbreakers. They may be held liable, which includes a fine and confiscation of the car.

The exemption applies to citizens of the Russian Federation traveling in transit to or from the Kaliningrad region in vehicles registered in Russia under a simplified travel document. Such transit through the territory of Lithuania cannot last longer than 24 hours. During the transit, the vehicle must be accompanied by its owner. If this person is not in the car, the vehicle will not be allowed to enter the territory of Lithuania.

It should be noted that in this way the country fulfills the EU requirements for the import and export of goods from Russia.

Russians who managed to import cars into Lithuania were obliged to take measures to ensure that their cars leave the territory of the Baltic country. However, they will not be able to travel to another EU country.

The restrictions also prohibit the importation into Lithuania of any vehicles registered in Russia and bearing Russian license plates even for temporary use. The ban applies to such vehicles regardless of the nationality of the driver.
