The move came in response to reports that Russia installed border markers along the administrative borderline between the Georgian region of Tskhinvali/South Ossetia and the remaining territory of Georgia.

"One part of Europe is obviously interested in Greece and other are on vacation. And Russia is taking advantage of the opportunity to carry out its creeping occupation, continuing with its actions started in 2008," the party's chairman Gabrielius Landsbergis told journalists.

Following the 2008 Russian-Georgian war, Russia recognized independence of Georgia's breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Meanwhile the international community considers them occupied Georgian territories.
