The “elections” are illegal and have no credible results, writes Foreign Ministry of Lithuania.

In addition, the Foreign Ministry of Lithuania denounces the ongoing attempts to consolidate annexation of the region.

"We reiterate our strong support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within the borders recognized by the international community. We once again call upon Russia to withdraw the unlawful recognition of the so-called “independence” of the occupied territories of Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region, to fully implement the Ceasefire Agreement of 12 August 2008, to immediately withdraw its forces from the occupied territories of Georgia, and to engage constructively in the Geneva International Discussions", finishes the statement Foreign Ministry.
