Zakharova clarified that "the invitation was transferred to the Lithuanian Embassy in Moscow."
Earlier, the Lithuanian press, citing the press service of the head of state, reported that Grybauskaite had not received an invitation. It was noted that neither the President of Lithuania, nor the republic’s ambassador in Moscow Remigijus Motuzas was invited to the ceremony. “The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry clarified that the Lithuanian Ambassador in Moscow did not receive an invitation by the end of the working day on Friday,” the portal lžinios wrote.
The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry added that the decision to participate in the inauguration of the Russian leader "will be made after receiving invitations."
Recall the inauguration ceremony of the Russian president will be held on Monday in the territory of the Moscow Kremlin.
