In light of the upcoming elections, things do not look good in this context considering the popularity of the Labor party run by Mr. Uspaskikh (a former Gazprom man?) and "Order and Justice" run by Mr. Paksas.
What frustrates me is the inability of the liberal parties to work together and avoid this perilous vote splitting. They should put the personal conflicts and unite, if they want to make difference in Lithuania that is.
Just to put things in perspective, the Lithuanian position is weak as far as the support from stronger and bigger Western countries is concerned - Germany is sold on the Nord Stream, France/Italy have never cared, and the US position regarding the support for small democratic countries next to Russia is unclear, as this video shows.
