Molotov Ribbentrob agreement[edit]

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molotov%E2%80%93Ribbentrop_Pact#The_secret_protocol Lithuania was part of the German sphere of influence. Hence the soviet occupation of Lithuania was a violation of that agreement. --41.151.103.64 (talk) 04:59, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

According to the same page, the agreement was changed by an additional protocol in September 1939. Lithuania was transfered to the Soviet sphere.No longer a penguin (talk) 13:31, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

July 6[edit]

July 6, 1253 is currently mentioned in at least three places in the article as the date on which Mindaugas was crowned / Lithuania was established as a state. No qualifiers or notes are included with the date to reflect that the date is by no means certain and is challenged by other experts on Lithuanian history. In fact, the reference used for the date is an article criticising the validity of this very date, which is a bit ridiculous. If there are no objections, my suggestion is to leave July 6, 1253 in the infobox but add a note briefly explaining ambiguity. Other instances in text should be changed to just 1253 which is something that everyone more or less agrees on. No longer a penguin (talk) 13:36, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Lithuania: parliamentary system?[edit]

I read the source given which indicated Lithuania as a parliamentary republic, but the link which contained the text of title "On the Programme of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania" is referred as being semi-presidential, with its powers being compared to France, Poland and (of pre-2000 Constitution) Finland. And considering that the President of Lithuania usually attends the European Council summits, it would be sensate changing the description of the form of government to semi-presidential republic. — B.Lameira (talk) 18:58, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
