MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. Speaker of the Russian parliament's lower house (the State Duma) Sergey Naryshkin sees in Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite’s anti-Russian statements willingness to please “her masters” and national radicals.

“There was the willingness to please her masters, national radicals, neo-Nazis and other fringe politicians,” he said.

Commenting on his attitude towards the Russian Communist Party’s proposal to make a statement on possible sanctions and rupture of diplomatic relations with Lithuania, Naryshkin said he did not support it.

“Lithuania is a small beautiful country and Lithuanians are industrious and intelligent. But the people also make mistakes sometimes by electing their politicians,” he said.

In addition, Naryshkin pointed to a certain politician, who was distinguished by strong anti-Russian statements - Georgian ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “Where is he today? Today he is a derelict in Georgia. No one wants to hold out a hand to him,” he said.

“I’m sure that of course, such statements do not facilitate the development of relations on the European continent,” Naryshkin said.

On November 20, Grybauskaite made anti-Russian statements in an interview with a local radio station.

On November 21, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said, “On November 20, President Dalia Grybauskaite belched out a new set of rude verbal assaults on Russia in an interview with a local radio station.” “She went as far as to label Russia as a terrorist state in the context of Ukrainian events,” he said.
