MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaite makes the anti-Russian statements, the extremism of which exceed the statements by nationalist radicals in Kiev and this obviously impedes resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, Russian Foreign Ministry official spokesman Alexander Lukashevih said in a comment Thursday night.
“On November 20, President Dalia Grybauskaite belched out a new set of rude verbal assaults on Russia in an interview with a local radio,” he said. “She went as far as to label Russia as a terrorist state in the context of Ukrainian events.”
“She also made an outright appeal to give military assistance to the incumbent Ukrainian regime, claiming that if Russia’s so-called aggression was not stopped then it could spread farther on into Europe,” Lukashevich said.
“President Grybauskaite’s claims exceed even the most extremist statements emanated by nationalist radicals in Kiev,” he said. “Her proclamations only impede the search for solutions to the Ukrainian crisis instead of facilitating it.”
“In contrast, soberly minded politicians who are not trying to win the likings of marginal forces and are really alarmed by the situation in Ukraine abide by a different, responsible approach,” Lukashevich said.
He recommended the Lithuanian President to tone down her ‘fervor of a Komsomol activist’ and to drop off the complexes about her Soviet past, which obviously pushed her into being holier than the Pope.
“It’s not the obnoxious desire to ignite conflicts and to insult the neighbors but the ability to tap fruitful solutions proceeding from the real that determines the degree of a politician’s wisdom,” Lukashevich said.
He added that the current situation in Ukraine had taken shape in no small a measure through the fault of Western officials who supported the anti-Constitutional coup there in February and are now pushing the Kiev rulers into a military misadventure against the people of Ukraine.
