December 16 – According to a report by the Belarusian News Agency, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zaharova commented at a press conference on the 15th on Lithuania’s what the United States called a “democratic beacon”: the light of the “lighthouse” went out in the storm. Lithuania would only obey certain countries and did something inconsistent with his own people. The interests of the people.
Zaharova sarcasticly said, “If we look at what is happening in this country, we will know that the light of the ‘lighthouse’ has gone out in the storm. In recent years, the number of dissidents repressions in Lithuania has been increasing; Lithuanian border guards have carried out brutal and cruel expulsions of refugees… Is it appropriate for other countries to send more troops to a country that treats people in this way? I think this question should be answered by those ‘defenders’ of democracy’ who believe that the light is still on.”
Zaharova further pointed out that the Lithuanian leadership continues to incite Russia’s so-called “invasion” rumors, and they just obey the orders of other countries to contain Russia.” The Lithuanian government supports endless offensive remarks, which are detrimental to the country and the people. They are just doing what other countries ask them to do.”
U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin met with Lithuanian Defense Minister Anussukas on the 13th, and the United States promised to help Lithuania strengthen its military strength. Austin claimed that Lithuania has become a “democratic beacon” in the region. Recently, in order to please the United States, Lithuania has been making friends with neighboring countries. Russia, Germany and other media issued articles angrily criticizing Lithuania as “stupid and selfish”.
