Lithuania advised Russia to discuss Soviet burial with local authorities

22
The issue of arranging military burials under Lithuanian law is in the competence of local authorities, therefore the Russian side should conduct a dialogue on this topic with municipalities. This was announced by Lithuanian Culture Minister Liana Ruokite-Jonsson on December 12 at a meeting with Russian Ambassador Alexander Udaltsov, the ministry’s press service reported.


The arrangement of burials is regulated by legal acts and is the exclusive right of local governments, therefore these issues should be resolved through friendly agreements with local governments
- noted the head of the department.

Lithuania advised Russia to discuss Soviet burial with local authorities


Ruokite-Jonson recalled that the program of cooperation in the field of culture ended in 2014, and the signing of the new document was delayed. Up to now, the arrangement of the burial places of Soviet soldiers in Lithuania, which the Russian side actively assists, has been carried out on the basis of the Improvement Rules for the immovable cultural heritage significant for foreign states, which are approved by the Minister of Culture, Sputnik Lithuania.

In November, a scandal erupted around the reburial of the remains of Soviet soldiers in the Vilnius Antakalnis cemetery. The Lithuanian Department of Cultural Heritage stated that the monument on the grave contained Soviet symbols, and the reburial was not fully agreed with the Ministry of Culture.

In October, information appeared in the Lithuanian media that the administration of the Birziai region of Lithuania in the places of burial of Soviet soldiers on their own initiative installed signs indicating that the inscriptions on the monuments allegedly did not match "historical the truth. "The Russian Embassy in the Republic called the installation of the plates" an infamous act. "

      A lot of them depend on our ambassadors. Yes, only some of them carry flowers to the graves of the Nazis.

        Well, this is not fun at all - it turns out to be a "Lithuanian" (braid) for the "architectural decorations" of men. In Russian transcription - a sickle in the eggs. It hurts, however. wink

    The question of the existence of Lithuania is being resolved at local levels in our troops, so I can advise the authorities of this country, as it were, to negotiate with the military of our army at all levels — from lieutenant to defense minister. And if in some part the officers do not use the Lithuanian language, wait for them to visit — they will teach the Lithuanians the Russian language! wassat

    Probably, we should take the remains of our soldiers to Russia and rebury here. Then no one can defile their memory.

    On the tablets it is written most likely that the Soviet army prevented the Lithuanians from killing Jews.

    Our foreign ministry is so powerful in defending Russia's foreign policy positions that such "trifles" as trampling the memory of the dead Soviet soldiers in Poland and the Baltic countries do not care much for Lavrov. Not a single response has been taken to protect the monuments, either political or economic! The right way, comrade! Hitler will write you a prize in the next world;)
    The President of the Russian Federation believes that such a problem does not exist at all!
    Bravo! He thinks all about Russia, he is our golden one, he should have a rest ...

    It is advisable, from all hostile countries, to remove the remains of dead soldiers to their homeland. Naturally, due to these countries. This issue should be resolved during the collapse of the USSR. But if the mockery of the memory of the fallen soldiers continues, then there are effective measures of "surgical treatment" of this bacchanalia.
