According to the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Maria ZakharovaForeign Minister of Lithuania Gabrielius Landsbergis engages in self-promotion, urging the people of Russia to “fight the authorities” instead of solving the accumulated problems of their own country.
Thus, Zakharova commented on the recent statements by Landsbergis, who calls on Russians to riot, protest and desert.
“If for someone such illegal Russophobic attacks remain the only chance to raise their own rating and divert the attention of the population from pressing problems, then I feel very sorry for such people,” Zakharova said during a briefing.
The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled how many problems Lithuania now has, stressing that no one in Russia is interested in his opinion.
“It is these problems that Landsbergis needs to deal with, and we will somehow decide how we should live in our country. Nobody cares about his opinion, that’s the problem. .
In addition, the representative of the department recalled the criminal liability for incitement to violence against the authorities, provided for in the current legislation of the Russian Federation.
