DISINFO: Lithuania aggressively violates human rights
[...] Anti-democratic processes are taking place in Lithuania too. They are violating universal humanitarian values and human rights. Constitutional rights in Lithuania are violated very aggressively. The question of human rights is often only a question of LGBT rights.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation message about the violation of human rights in Lithuania.
“Freedom House” defines Lithuania as “a democracy in which political rights and civil liberties are generally respected”. Lithuanian “Global Freedom Score” is 90 points (from 100).
The US Department of State in “2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices” presents Lithuania this way:
The Republic of Lithuania is a constitutional, multiparty, parliamentary democracy. Legislative authority resides in a unicameral parliament (Seimas), and executive authority resides in the Office of the President. Observers evaluated the presidential elections and European Parliamentary elections in May 2019 and the national parliamentary elections on October 11 and October 25 as generally free and fair.
Lithuania has all democratic mechanisms to protect human rights. The constitutional rights of inhabitants of Lithuania are protecting the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Lithuania.
