Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis on Tuesday is to travel to the administrative boundary line between Georgia and South Ossetia.

He is also scheduled to visit refugees from the breakaway region.

Russia recognized the breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent states after a brief war with Georgia in 2008.

Thousands of Russian troops are stationed on a permanent basis in military bases in South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which are considered by the international community as occupied territories of Georgia.

Skvernelis said at a news conference in Tbilisi on Monday that Lithuania condemned Russia's "creeping annexation" of the regions.
