Arvydas Anušauskas, member of the Homeland Union-Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TS-LKD) group in the parliament, has addressed the Prosecutor General's Office over a seemingly separatist Facebook page. The MP has requested that prosecutors to identify the administrators of the account called Wilenska Republika Ludowa (Vilnius People's Republic) on Facebook.

On 29 January, the page had 200 followers.

"Even though this was said to be a provocation, the law enforcement has not launched an investigation. Because constitutional values - the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Lithuania - have to be protected from any attacks, I have addressed the Prosecutor General's Office requesting to carry out an investigation and identify the initiators," said Anušauskas.

According to the conservative MP, "the Prosecutor General's Office must act immediately to defend the constitutional values and not to create the illusion of impunity".

The MP says that even though Russia's special services' methods are evident, it does not mean that such cases should remain unexamined.
