On May 22, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania summoned a representative of the Embassy of the Russian Federation to Lithuania and requested a full explanation of media reports about legislative amendments planned in Russia related to state maritime boundaries.

According to media reports and Russia's state legislative website, www.regulation.gov.ru, Russia plans to adjust the geographical coordinates for points at which it calculates its territorial waters. During the meeting, the Russian representative was asked to explain this public information.
