The attempt of the President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite accused Russia of building up military capacity in the Kaliningrad region is the order of the West, says the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich. His words are quoted by the national news service (NSN) on Tuesday, June 6.
“Everything we do, we do on-site without creating any unnecessary divisions: we have the Baltic fleet, the coast guard, we are conducting planned exercises, which are defined by the General staff”, — said Russian Senator.
At the same time, Klintsevich said that in recent years in the Baltic countries there is a “social collapse” in the number of older people is growing, and able-bodied young people are leaving to Europe. Russophobic policy Grybauskaite, in his opinion, — the only resource that allows it to stay in power.
“The President of Lithuania, which I know well, was a Komsomol worker with the party ticket, ruthless and uncompromising”, — he said.
Earlier Tuesday it was reported that Grybauskaite before the official visit to Estonia, said the main threat to the Baltic countries and Poland the existence of Russia and Belarus in the East. “Plus the militarization of the Kaliningrad region, plus use of the territory of Belarus for various experiments and aggressive games against the West,” has listed the Lithuanian President.
On 5 June it became known that the Lithuanian authorities started the construction of a security fence on the border with Russia. The construction length of about 45 kilometers must be built before the end of the year.
