Lithuanian President Slams Russia’s ‘Brutal Force’
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 21 Nov.'08 / 17:23

Lithuanian President, Valdas Adamkus, sent a letter to President Saakashvili congratulating on the fifth-year anniversary of the Rose Revolution and criticizing use of “brutal force” by Russia against Georgia.

“Five years ago, Georgia proclaimed to the world its resolve to embark on the path of freedom, democracy and reforms. You well knew that it would be a difficult road,” the Lithuanian President says in a letter. “But nobody expected that your decision would be challenged by brutal military force unleashed against the freedom of Georgia.”

Lithuania was the only EU-member country, which remained strongly opposed to resumption of partnership talks with Russia. “We think this is a mistake. History will show who was right and who was not,” Lithuanian Deputy Foreign Minister Zygimantas Pavilionis told AFP on November 10 after EU decided to resume talks with Russia.

The Lithuanian President also wrote in the letter that the best response to the August events would be “Georgia’s continuous efforts to consolidate democratic principles and pursue reforms.”

“I firmly believe that the hopes and expectations of Georgian people to build their lives in an independent and democratic country, without being threatened by an external military force, will come true, just like they were fulfilled five years ago,” President Adamkus said.
