Lithuania urged EU countries to expel Russian ambassadors

The Lithuanian Foreign Minister has called on European Union countries to expel Russian ambassadors.

Gabrielius Landsbergis’ statement came amid heightened diplomatic tensions between the Baltic states and Moscow over the invasion of Ukraine.

“There are not many advantages to having an ambassador, an ambassador from Russia, in every European capital,” Landsbergis told a news conference in Riga.

“In most cases, it is no longer a diplomatic institution, but a propaganda institution that covers up war crimes and generally promotes the genocide agenda,” he said.

Lithuania downgraded its diplomatic relations with Russia, expelling the Russian ambassador in April last year after evidence of massacres was discovered in Bucha.
