The bill’s authors say the current laws do not take into account citizens, who received the passport “by the way of exception” and “support aggressor states and thus pose a threat to the security of Lithuania, the region and allies”.

The amendments were initiated “in view of the current situation involving the Russian war in Ukraine and the threat to Lithuania and the entire region”, the bill’s explanatory note said.
