Last week, Lithuania’s parliament passed a resolution that designates the Russian Federation as a terrorist country. The resolution was passed unanimously, with 128 votes in favor, none against, and no abstentions.

“The @LRSeimas unanimously recognizes Russia’s actions in #Ukraine as genocide,” the Lithuanian Seimas announced on its official Twitter page on May 10, 2022.

The resolution proclaimed that Russian troops and mercenaries in Ukraine are guilty of genocide and other heinous war crimes that have been recorded in the cities of Bucha, Irpin, Mariupol, Borodyanka, and Gostomel.

It also claims that the Russian forces on the ground had the conscious intent to wholly or partially dismember the Ukrainian state and crush its spirit by massacring, abducting, torturing, mocking, and raping its people.

“The Seimas recognizes the full-scale armed aggression – war – against Ukraine by the armed forces of the Russian Federation and its political and military leadership […] as genocide against the Ukrainian people,” the resolution reads.
