Unconditional policy of following the United States to the detriment of their interests leads Lithuania to the degradation, said RIA Novosti member of the state Duma Committee for international Affairs, Elena Panina («United Russia»).

The parliamentary Committee of Lithuania on foreign Affairs approved on Thursday the draft law, the analogue of «Magnitsky act», which will create additional legal grounds for the prohibition of entry to Lithuania to foreigners.

«Everything that makes Lithuania in the last time, this is an attempt to somehow remind myself that there is such a state as Lithuania. The result of this policy of unconditional follow US to the detriment of their interests is that Lithuania is degraded: people, especially young people, are leaving the country,» — said Panin RIA Novosti.

The MP said that according to estimates of the statistical service of European Union Eurostat, calculated per thousand inhabitants in Lithuania, the decrease in population is 1.13%, and «this is the highest figure among all EU member States».

«And by 2040 Lithuania will live less than 2 million people. In 1991, Lithuania’s population numbered almost 4 million people, that is, the reduction is almost doubled. Very sorry for the Lithuanian people, really hardworking and with a great history, which is now scattered around the world», — concluded the MP.

The Magnitsky act was adopted in 2012 in the United States. The law establishes the personal sanctions against persons responsible for the observance of human rights in the Russian Federation. Earlier, a similar law imposing sanctions against foreign officials came into effect in Canada.
