2012-05-02 15:40

The name "South Ossetia" was removed from the Lithuanian language. 


As reported by the IA Regnum, The name "South Ossetia" was removed from the Lithuanian language. Thus, Lithuania has decided to support the Georgians in the issue of "the restoration of territorial integrity", the edition reported citing the press service of the Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius.

Kubilius told his Georgian counterpart Nika Gilauri in Lithuania that the State Commission for the language has recently decided to officially call the South Ossetia "Tskhinvali region". "This is our assistance to Georgia in its struggle for the restoration of the country's territories", the Lithuanian Prime Minister said.

Recall, Abkhazia and South Ossetia declared independence from Georgia in early 1990s, and all attempts of the Georgian authorities to regain control over these regions by force failed. In 2008, after a five-day war in South Ossetia, the breakaway republics were formally recognized by Russia. However, official Tbilisi considers its Georgian territories under the "Russian occupation".
