President of Lithuania was a KGB agent

Summary of Disinformation

President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė used to cooperate with KGB actively under the pseudonyme Magnolia.


Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the president of Lithuania. No evidence given to the claim that Dalia Grybauskaitė would have been working as a KGB agent. As explained by the Insider, in 2015 the website of the Center for Research of Genocide and Resistance of Lithuanian residents was hacked and fake documents about Grybauskaitė as an agent "Magnolia" were published. One of the documents was a letter containing inaccuracies and formulations not used in the USSR in 1982, when it was allegedly written.
