Where is Politzk, Russia? #lithuania


My grandfather emigrated to New York City in 1913 (born in the early 1890's). I was told he was from Russia then I was told he was from Lithuania, as was msy grandmother (she was from Vilnius). His World War II registration card says he was born in "POLITZK, RUSSIA."  I cannot find this on the internet.  Does anyone know where this is or what it's called today?  Any help is appreciated.
