Pro-Kremlin information outlets are talking about Lithuanians attracted by low prices and flooding Kaliningrad Oblast. That said, there is a lack of information to back up such claims.

Information is being distributed on Facebook regarding a significant increase in Lithuanian citizens visiting Kaliningrad Oblast. “Lithuanians rush to hunt “sweet” prices,” bukimevieningi.lt, ldiena.lt and the Lithuanian portal for the Russian news agency Sputnik claim. The links to these publications have been shared more than a hundred times in August.
