"He's a real friend of Lithuania who contributed to the consolidation of Lithuania's independence, and a real democrat who gave a lot of hope and belief in that Russia is capable of choosing the path of democracy.

I believe it would be meaningful to honor this outstanding figure by naming a square or street after him," Mykolas Majauskas, the HU-LCD elder, told BNS on Wednesday.
