Despite my Schengen visa in the Schengen area according to EU rules no boundaries-I was not let out of the airport. It turns out that there’s a secret list of undesirable in Lithuania persons from Russia. They say that the lists in advance can not be obtained and no notices are not sent and the reasons also do not explain, to their status gr. Russia could only find in the airport upon arrival. Came and “turned”. Saying thus gets an additional moral effect!!! Despicable SYSTEM. To explain why not allowed, the customs officer I can’t. He’s extremely uncomfortable and he awkwardly explains that he respects me and like my songs, but nothing depends on him etc. I told him that I understand. Officer himself. Fit girls – the hotel staff at the airport and I gave them autographs and took selfies. One of them said that has come true her dream is to see me and get an autograph. The “moral impact” of the government of Lithuania in me and the kindness of an officer of customs and girls has led to the fact that I still like the people of Lithuania and it is extremely disgusting GOVERNMENT, which under the slogan of protection of the population from the harmful effects of Russian culture tries to divide us. But Music knows no boundaries. I’m not saying goodbye! I say goodbye beautiful #Lithuania ! May you have everything good,” wrote the singer in a Network (spelling and punctuation of the author saved. — Approx. ed.).
