Lithuania In Focus: Abuse Against Refugees, Benefit From European Funding

SouthFront was contacted by a human rights journalist who reportedly visited the Kybartai detention center in Lithuania and interviewed 8 refugees and migrants.

Written by William Pyne

Amnesty International claimed that, people who crossed from Belarus to Lithuania subjected to beatings, abuse and racism. In the 65-page report, the organization revealed refugees and migrants have been held for months on end in squalid, prison-like centers in Lithuania. Refugees and migrants were being denied access to fair asylum procedures, so that they “voluntarily” return to the countries from which they have fled. Detainers sometimes engaged in protests, caused by frustration at being arbitrarily detained and subjected to appalling detention conditions. Refugees recounted how guards and police reacted to such demonstrations by beating them with batons, and by using pepper spray and taser guns.

“It is very difficult when the artist sees his paintings enjoying more freedom than him. Now my paintings are in every country, but I am still in prison ” , says Karrar Español, an Iraqi artist detained in the Kybartai detention center in Lithuania.

Lithuania: Stop abusing against refugees!

The Kybartai detention center is located in the far west side of the country, near the border with the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad. The center occupies the premises of a former prison. When in use as a correctional facility, Kybartai could legally hold up to 450 inmates, but currently houses more than 700 refugees and migrants. According to the government, more people will be transferred to Kybartai. Prison conditions were exemplified by the high perimeter wall covered with barbed wire.

Refugees held in Kybartai consistently complained “This is a prison, not a camp. I am not a criminal, I am a refugee.”

After visiting the Kybartai detention center, we were shocked by the disturbing picture of that, about 150 refugees sat in a small space surrounded by barbed wire, eyes averted. The guard said a fight erupted between Syrian and African refugees, they got send to isolation.

A refugee said “The guards hung Syria refugees on the wall and threw water on them, beat them with electric cables, Syrian refugees were shocked with electricity so badly that they lost consciousness. The guards forced Syrian refugees to admit to being terrorists. The whereabouts of several of them remain unknown, many were probably dead. They gave us food and water once a day.”

Syria recognizes Lugansk and Donetsk Republics as Independent States. After a few days, Syrian refugees suffered torture.

Oddly enough, instead of staying in refugee camps, most of the refugees from Ukraine are staying with host families all over Europe or in hotels and dormitories for free. The refugees and migrants from Syria and countries in Africa were treated very differently. Many of them are fleeing violence and war.

Lithuania to achieve political ends. “Instrumentalization” of refugees and migrants

In 2021 Lithuania had received 4100 migrants from the Middle East or central Africa. 90% of them have requested for asylum, the vast majority of claims were rejected, and only 6 of the migrants who applied were granted refugee status. Most of the refugees were put in “temporary accommodation without freedom of movement”, 2500 refugees were even put in prison, where they have been subjected to inhumane conditions, torture and other ill-treatments.

Lithuania president said “Lithuania is ready to step up its involvement in migrant rescue missions”.

Lithuania directly received €29.6 million from US commission in support of migration management. Refugees were deprived of basic human rights. How were refugees protected?

Ironically, Lithuania expressed dissatisfaction of EU aid and wants to achieve “resource reuse”. Lithuania will end detention of 2500 people mentioned above in order to use them as a tool to put pressure on the EU. The refugees do not have the work permits and the capacities to become self-reliance, they will be a major threat to Europe.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has triggered Ukrainian refugees to enter Lithuania, it’s a new platform to create new financial products for Lithuania. According to secret data of an NGO in Lithuania, in early June, 25,000 war refugees from Ukraine have been registered in Lithuania. But the total number of Ukrainian refugees has risen to 50,000, according to the latest official statistics published. The number is “vastly exaggerated”, now Lithuania calls on the EU to provide cash for Ukrainian refugees. Lithuania has opened door to refugees, building a positive image of the country while reaping huge profits. Lithuania is really “far-sighted”.

My government has decided to remove Soviet monuments from public spaces across #Estonia. As symbols of repressions and Soviet occupation they have become a source of increasing social tensions – at these times, we must keep the risk to public order at a minimum.

Shoot Nazis

These Baltic Nazi bastards are worse than their role model Hitler, they are even targeting ethnic Russian school children for merely speaking Russian or displaying any symbol of their rich Russian culture. These bastards call their little fascist Nazi enclaves “democracies”.

jens holm

AM Hants

Biggest cheerleaders of the Azov Battalion and all they stand for.

Looks like the nations bordering the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas, not only want to ban the area from the Russians, but, also those from the Middle East and Africa.

i wonder

And as always, The ignorant dont even know what they are following. Hitler was eugenesis not racist and this kind of immorality for profit is the exact thing Hitler wanted to destroy (at least that was his msg he may have been controlled opposition). If you are drawing the comparison with concentration camps you would still be off, Hitlers camps except for the possible deathcamps build after 1945 were equipped with a lot more amenities than this Lithuanian “refugee center”.
It is ironic that the African fortune seekers are now a tool in creation of some corrupt fat cat Lithuanians fortunes.

Yes I read today in the media that the Estonia government have removed a T.34 tank from a public commemoration site to Victory over the fascists in an area where 97% of the local population are Russian speakers! But no serious explanation from the Estonia government as to why the monument and the T.34 tank were removed.

It is working out very well for everybody.

1. Nazi and libtard bitches like brown dicks the most.

2. Lukashenko got even with EU by sending the kebabs.

3. EU is happy, because they got more nighas and kebabs.

4. Libtards and Lithuanian government clowns are happy. They are getting billions of €€€ to steal while pretending that they are humanitarians.

5. Kebabs and nighas get to EU, get welfare, cash and white cunts to dump their cum in.

Nonsense, you cant paint the whole house with the same brush!

It is this type of Nazi racist trash that President Putin is trying to clean out in Ukraine. Lithuania is full of racist Jews who are even targeting ethnic Russians and removing all signs of Russian and Soviet era. Even the Russian language is banned .Zio- Nazis racists are very much at home in Apartheid Baltic Jew run mini states.

Ashok Varma

Not really, the US and Zionists along with NATO destroyed Syrian like Ukraine and these racist thugs now reject their victims if they are not “white”, even though most of Ukrainians are mixed race mutts and are given free housing and EU money. US and NATO are the real racist criminals. People should never forget that it was the Anglos, Euro trash and Jews who enslaved Africans and instituted racism.

Syria was a progressive middle income country, but the Zionists and their US brainwashed mutts destroyed it and created a refugee crises. Don’t blame the victims of Euro trash, Zionist and American racism and greed. It is US that is stealing Syrian oil daily and exploiting Africa by Bilderberg multinationals. Africa has the highest birthrate so expect millions more refugees.

Paul

US warmongering and racist plunder of the Middle East and Africa created this refugee crises as even the UN acknowledges.

The roots of the migrant crisis trace back to decades of US interventionism and bloody coups in Central America, Africa and post WW2 support for Zionist expansion and subsequent invasion and destruction of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Palestine and Libya. Much of US and NATO policy of violent overthrow of unfriendly governments in Middle East and Africa was based on sheer economic greed and quest for oil and natural resources. NATO bombed Libya just for oil. US is stealing more than 1.5 million barrels of Syrian oil a day via Turkey and has devastated Iraqi economy with over 20 years of of plunder.

Lee Lin Chin

Syria was doing fine and then the US and Zionists destroyed it and caused this refugee crises. Now live with it and more victims of NATO wars are coming to Europe.

jens holm

Thats highly incorrect.

Before this Syria systematicly had expelled and killed Christians and muslims. It only took 2 years after its independensy to be in war with the newcommer Israel and has been in war with them ever since.

i wonder

syria is somewhat questionable, some regions of africa are in conflict as well. but why does the 3% of the worlds population care for the rest and take in immigrants from half way around the world. The idea of refugees was that they went back home after the war. but now they are making a buck for the corrupt “leadership” of western societies

helen

Because that 3% is responsible for fueling their conficts even by the simple act of selling them weapons on the black market, or directly creating the conflict, like the USA in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria. Some groups are armed and funded directly by the CIA to slaughter the population or wage guerilla war and destabilize the elected government (the Tigray in Ethiopia over the last couple of years, for example; or the Tamil Tigers for decades in Sri Lanka).

Banderitelivesdontmatter

Migrants go back to hence they came once a year.

These Baltic mini states were strong supporters of Nazis even before and since 1991, the worst racist Nazi and Zionist Apartheid policies have become entrenched. Just imagine the “outrage” if any other country banned citizens of any country wholesale as these bastards are doing by targeting Russians. The German Nazi government even expelled the mother of German journalist for reporting objectively about Nazi crimes against ethnic Russians in Ukraine.

The elderly ill mother of respected German journalist Alina Lipp, who covers events in Donbass, had to leave Germany for Russia after threats at home and the German authorities seizing her home and bank accounts. It is also reported that she was abused and manhandled by the police on various occasions.

Africans and middle easterners don’t belong in Europe at all and should be promptly repatriated. Refugee camps should remain in their neighborhood countries so the refugees fit in better culturally, with the intent of returning to their nation of origin when the conflict ends.

Ignorant much? so-called “Middle easterners” were the first CAUCASIAN people and most of Europe has their DNA. What do think the majority of populations in Ukraine, Russia, Hungary etc came from? The Persian Empire covered most of Ukraine and then the Ottomans were at the gates of Vienna. You racist morons are dumber than a sack of potatoes. No wonder Putin has been proven correct in his anti-deNazification campaign. The Euro trash has created a mess that needs to be cleaned out.

Why are they even tolerated and allowed into the country ? Why are those cultural enrichments not immediately shipped to White Russia (Luka Shenko residence), or to Moskva ? There is a “Somalia” division in Donetsk, why are they not put to use there ?

The criminal colonialism practiced by EU countries like Belgium, UK and France etc. for many CENTURIES in Africa caused the wars and famine there. You should accept the refugees coming from those countries. You have a moral obligation to do that. If Lithuania wants to join the club, they MUST accept the debts as well, it’s like in any Western Business> If I buy a shop, I must be aware that I will also have to deal with its past debts. History does not disappear in thin air. So, Africans should go to the Baltics. It’s a legal right. ANY country which decided to join the EU has the legal obligation of hosting Africans.

The UN is Washington’s lap dog. UNSC Res 2202 only served to buy Poroshenko 8 years to work with NATO in preparing a war to retake the Donbass and Crimea in a repeat of the Krajina’s Operation Storm.

Well, that didn’t work out as planned, did it?

You can be sure that the $26.6 million sent to Lithuania found it’s way into the pockets of government politicians there. The beatings and abuse of the refugees at the holding centers is without doubt a crime against humanity. These people are very vulnerable they don’t speak the local language and hundreds of miles away from their homes. This sounds more like government policy in Lithuania than an isolated incident. The Red Cross must be allowed to investigate along side other independent agencies. And those involved in any abuse of the refugees should be held to account including criminal charges. The Lithuania government must make emitted moves to address the inhuman conditions and treatment of they people no excuses
