Lithuanian President Nauseda, following Biden, called Putin, a "killer."
Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda also said that the Russian head of state Vladimir Putin is a "killer". He also believes that Russia neglects the territorial integrity of its neighbors, in particular Ukraine.
When asked by a journalist if Nauseda agreed with US President Joe Biden, who recently called Putin a "killer," he replied: "Unfortunately, yes."
The Lithuanian President noted that he sees in Russia's actions a disregard for the civilized world's values and a disregard for the right of nations to self-determination. Nauseda also assessed the situation in Russia itself - in particular, with the condemnation of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. According to the Lithuanian head of state, the local regime "is trembling in the face of the growing opposition."
And Nauseda also criticized the European Union's policy for trying to cooperate with Russia, despite the policy of its government. He assured that Lithuania would not ignore human rights violations by this country.
To repeat, pressing on our shoulders, he says, you know, we are trying to establish relations with Russia means to be emotionally and geographically far from what is called Russia," Nauseda said.
We will remind, quite recently, on March 17, US President Joe Biden said in an interview with ABC, will make Russian President Vladimir Putin "pay" for meddling in the US elections and called him a "killer."
This statement came against the background of a US intelligence report, During the 2020 presidential election, which found out that Russian President Vladimir Putin knew and probably directed Russian intelligence services to undermine the current US President Joe Biden.
After such statements by Biden, Russia recalled its ambassador to the United States for consultations and relations between the countries. But Putin himself wished Biden good health and noted that "whoever calls his name is called that."
Putin also invited Biden to talk on the phone, to which he replied: "I am sure we will talk at some point."
He also wrote that in Russia, the government "is simply shaking in the face of the increasing opposition," is attempting to overcome it, and "in the cruelest way" is destroying opposition leaders such as Alexei Navalny.
