Lithuania's Russian minority feels foreign

Lithuanian media discovered this week that a group of Russian-language school pupils from the city of Visaginas took part in summer activities for boy scouts in Russia in which they played soldiers of the Red Army fighting for 'the Russian fatherland'. The website 15min sees this as a sign that minorities in Lithuania are not well enough integrated: "Every Lithuanian should feel responsible for the fact that some members of our country's Russian minority are fed with Kremlin propaganda and feel like foreigners here. It's not the boy scouts of Visaginas who should seek contact with Lithuanian society. ... We must remind these people that they are just as Lithuanian as we are. ... Each of us must help to find a common language and make clear to our fellow citizens: this is your country, you are welcome and are important here."
