E. V. and A. V. The case of reinstatement of Lithuanian citizenship

The father and the grandparents of the person were citizens of Lithuania prior to 15 June 1940. Both the father and the grandparents of the person were born and lived in Lithuania. When the World War II began, the grandmother was imprisoned, the grandfather was shot dead and the father was brought to the children’s home. In 1946, the father of the person left Lithuania, because he felt oppression from the side of the authorities, he could not live in Lithuania for his origin, his father was shot dead as a commander of partisans and there was a real danger of imprisonment for him. However, the Certificate of Birth of his father included no data on the father of the father (the grandfather of the person), so the person applied to a court for proving the family connections. The legal fact was established in judicial procedure and the relevant data were fixed in the Certificate of Birth. After preparation of the required documents and collection of evidences that the father and the grandparents of the person were citizens of Lithuania prior to 15 June 1940 and the father left Lithuania because of political and historical reasons, the person applied to the Migration Department of Lithuania for reinstatement of the citizenship of Lithuania for him and his son. After examination of the submitted documents, the Migration Department of Lithuania passed a positive decision on reinstatement of the citizenship of Lithuania for the person and his son upon preservation of the current citizenship of Ukraine (a dual citizenship).
