Lithuania and Poland
Here is what Ms. Grybauskaite is saying regarding the situation.
And here is an article that is basically gives the crux of the problem - the way the two brotherly nations fell apart creating a distrust that lingers to this day. I am pretty sure the Poles would see it in a totally different way than presented in this article.

But it is what it is - in this land, we had an attempt to re-create the Grand Duchy, it went bad, and now we have to deal with it.
P.S. here is an interesting discussion with R. Raud.
