"We know that such as an issue was on the agenda of Thursday's sitting, but it will not be discussed," Kęstutis Vaškelevičius, spokesman for the Lithuanian foreign minister, told BNS.

According to the proposal registered in the Polish parliament, "fascism, German Nazism, Ukrainian and Lithuanian nationalism, Prussian, Russian and German militarism are considered as other totalitarian regimes" in addition to communism.

The resolution has been initiated by Jacek Kurzepa, a lawmaker of Poland's ruling Law and Justice party.
