Latvian scientist Gants Scutans has been hindered from participation in the international seminar “Archaelogy and History of Pskov and Pskov Lands,” where the 33-year-old Latvian intended to made a report. The question is the scientist did not manage to draw up documents necessary to cross Russian-Latvian border. Though, he wanted to participate in the forum so much, that in the early morning he illegally crossed a frontier section and, in the nearest village, got in a bus to the regional centre. To the scientist’s distress, in several minutes the bus was driven up by frontier guard cars. The trespasser archaeologist was detained.
