"In connection with yesterday's unacceptable statement of the president of Lithuania, I propose that the committee for international affairs should prepare a statement and maybe a resolution to impose sanctions against Lithuania and maybe even cut off diplomatic relations," Duma member Nikolay Kolomeitsev of the Communist Party said, as reported by TASS.

As reported, on Thursday President Grybauskaitė called Russia a terrorist state and warned that if aggression in Ukraine is not stopped it might spread further.
