The Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania does not recognize the results of the presidential election in Belarus. The press service of the Seimas reported this.
“Fully supporting the determination of Belarusian people to build the future of their country in accordance with the principles of democracy, rule of law and human rights, members of the Seimas expressed their position in the adopted resolution “On the situation in the Republic of Belarus after the rigged presidential election.”
“In this resolution, we first of all support the determination of the Belarusian people. We do not recognize the results of August 9 elections.
