Lithuanian Parliamentary Speaker Viktoras Muntianas said in an interview with Ziniu Radijas news radio on Wednesday that he is not satisfied with Lithuania's relations with Russia.
"Our relations with Russia are not good, if changed, it should be done only to the good direction. Personally I am not satisfied with what the relations with Russia are," Muntianas said.
Muntianas also commented on the recent municipal elections in Russia. He said that victories of the pro-presidential United Russia party lead to the development of a single party system.
"Democratization process and the fact that it is moved towards a single-party system, in my opinion, will be a very bad phenomenon for Russia itself," the speaker emphasized.
