The Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania, on June 26 adopted a Resolution recognising the Lithuanian Communist Party (LCP), which functioned during the Soviet occupation in Lithuania, as a criminal organisation. A similar draft resolution was initiated in the Seimas two years ago, however, the former ruling coalition rejected it without a consideration. This time, the Resolution won support of a vast majority of Members and was adopted with only one vote against, the Homeland Union-Lithuanian Christian Democrats Political Group in the Seimas said in a press release.
