russian State Duma proposes to revoke Lithuania's independence

russian State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fyodorov proposed to cancel the Soviet resolution recognizing Lithuania's independence

It was reported by the russian propaganda source RIA Novosti.

"Fedorov submitted to the State Duma a draft repealing the resolution of the USSR State Council "On the recognition of the independence of the Republic of Lithuania," the publication said.

It is worth noting that Lithuania's withdrawal from the USSR was painful and not without civilian casualties because Soviet troops tried to suppress the mass movement for independence.

At the same time, after 1991 Soviet coup d'état attempt, also known as the August Coup, russia's own internal problems became more acute.

Therefore, on September 6, 1991, at a meeting of the USSR State Council, a body established by the V Extraordinary Congress of People's Deputies, chaired by Mikhail Gorbachev, the independence of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia was recognized.

It should be noted that Lithuania supports the toughest EU sanctions against russia, consistently supports Ukraine's accession to the EU, and provides military assistance in the confrontation with russia.

As a reminder, Lithuania handed over heavy mortars to Ukraine in late April.

Lithuania also proposed the creation of a naval coalition to lift russia's blockade and export Ukrainian grain.
