Leader of the Seimas Opposition in Lithuania Andrius Kubilius says the investment agreement conducted between Siauliai City Municipality and creators of the so called string transport is a threat to national security, informs LETA/ELTA, referring Siauliu krastas.

The Bank of Lithuania launched an investigation into the company headed by a Russian citizen Anatoly Yunitskiy and the origin of its capital. However, the mayor of Siauliai sees no threat – the municipality received LTL 1 million (EUR 290 thousand) deposit on Thursday.


Meanwhile, Leader of the Opposition Andrius Kubilius addressed Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius and Minister of National Defence Juozas Olekas over "an investment project signed by social democratic heads of Siauliai city.


Kubilius says a company of opaque capital, most probably Russian, plans to build a laboratory for trains that run "on string railway" near NATO air force base in Zokniai". "Taking into account the strategic significance of Zokniai airfield the initiative must be stopped immediately. It must be investigated who the initiators of the very dubious project are," said Kubilius. He also raised suspicions that the project favoured by some may be entangled in corruption.
