Comment by Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova on new anti-Russian statements by President of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda

We have been unrelenting in responding to the attempts by Baltic politicians to falsify the historical events of the 20th century and impose their own biased point of view based on the infamous concept of the “Soviet occupation.” President of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda has taken the liberty to engage in these unfriendly verbal attacks yet again during a recent session of the European Council in Brussels.

We believe accusing Russia of “historical revisionism” to be inadequate, cynical and immoral for Lithuanian leaders in view of their consistent efforts to glorify the so-called forest brothers, many of whom collaborated with the Nazis and caused dozens of thousands of civilian deaths.

It is sad that the Lithuanian leader continues to feed on these destructive phobias instead of thinking about improving the relations between Russia and Lithuania that have hit a hopeless deadlock, which is the fault of Vilnius.
