Former Lithuanian President Valdas Adamkus considers any attempt to cater to the dictatorship as unacceptable. Lithuanian politician compared the president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko with Adolf Hitler and added that "it's not worthy to cooperate with such dictators as Lukashenko for the sake of stability."

According to Valdas Adamkus, «warming» of relations with Belarus will not contribute to energy independence of Lithuania. However, the ex-president refused to comment on the political decision on the issue, DELFI reports.

Lithuanian politician voiced his opinion about recent statements of the incumbent President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite regarding the political situation in Belarus. «I am categorically opposed to any dictatorship. Let me rely on my long life’s experience and remind you the situation when before the Second World War Neville Chamberlain, Edouard Daladier, Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler signed an agreement at the Munich conference on the basis, you are now standing for. I am guided by the principles of democracy. Any attempt to please and justify the dictatorship is unacceptable for me,» Valdas Adamkus said.

As Telegraf previously reported, that Grybauskaite, speaking to ambassadors of the EU countries in Vilnius in November, stated that the victory of Alexander Lukashenko in the Belarusian presidential elections would limit the influence of Moscow on Minsk, as well as would maintain stability in the EU neighboring country.
