On 7 May, a representative of the Russian Embassy was summoned to Lithuania's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where a protest was expressed over the officially announced false statement of the Russian Embassy in the U.S. about the Lithuanian partisan commander Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas after a monument to him was unveiled in the suburb of Chicago, informs Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In the meeting, the Russian representative was advised to study the personality and activities of A. Ramanauskas-Vanagas more closely, as it is most inappropriate for Russia to accuse him of collaboration with the Nazis or of participation in the Holocaust. His impeccable reputation has been confirmed by numerous independent experts researching the historical events and archival documents of that time.

The Russian representative was urged to refrain from spreading disinformation about the armed anti-Soviet resistance movement and attempts to rewrite history based on accusations by repressive structures of the occupying Soviet regime.

According to the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, such statements by the Russian side are a wider part of disinformation spread at all levels and are to be perceived as an ordinary attempt to discredit Lithuania's guerilla war, as well as to deny the fact of the Soviet occupation.

Lithuania is proud of thousands of women and men, who have participated in the armed anti-Soviet resistance movement, and expresses its highest respect for Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas, the Commander in-Chief and symbol of this movement.
