Former Lithuanian Foreign Minister: Anti-Russian rhetoric of Lithuanian politicians has become a “real headache” for the European Union

26
Former head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Povilas Gilis, published an article entitled “Extreme Relations between Lithuania and Russia,” in which he noted that the anti-Russian rhetoric of the Lithuanian authorities had become “a real headache for European politicians who had not yet lost their mind” Victory in Moscow "at least at the minimum level" turns the country into a "marginal".

Former Lithuanian Foreign Minister: Anti-Russian rhetoric of Lithuanian politicians has become a “real headache” for the European Union


“I think in Lithuania there are two opinions competing with respect to our political radicalism, extremism. Those who think that Lithuanian patriotism should be measured by the degree of hatred towards Russia, they think that everything is “cool”. But there is another part of the citizens of Lithuania who do not believe that we should incite, encourage the conflict between the East and the West. They are well aware that the forces of Lithuania in this clash of civilizations are modest, and they fear that Lithuania may become just a pawn in a big political game, ”the newspaper quotes from the article. "Sight".

Gilis said that Lithuania had become the only state of the European Union whose representative would not be at the celebration of the 70 anniversary of the Victory over fascism in Moscow.

“In an effort to stand out, we lost common sense,” said Gilis.

In addition, in the opinion of the former minister, Lithuania’s position seems to demonstrate the logic of expectation “when an unreasonable Europe will reach the level of Lithuania”.

“Usually moderate Prime Minister Algidras Butkevicius stated that Lithuania, refusing to participate in the celebration, is doing the right thing. Therefore, all of Europe is doing wrong, ”Gilis concluded.

      This is what is called "European democracy in action". or "under Uncle Sam's boot." As long as an ACTING European politician is obliged to stigmatize Russia as an enemy of democracy. As soon as he becomes an EXPolitician. Then he begins to speak the truth, since he has nothing to lose. Thus, "democracy and freedom of speech" in the European way is not worth a penny.

      "What we have, we do not store, but when we lose it, we cry." That's how Lithuania is ... The comfortable life in the Union ended and a hard reality came instead of the European paradise. The country, which is essentially nothing of itself, suitable only as a territory for foreign military bases, is angry at the people from whom it left. Now it remains only to shit on him, counting on the praise of the overseas owner. God is their judge, they made their choice.

    Lithuania’s forces in this clash of civilizations are modest and fear that Lithuania might just become a pawn in the big political game. ” Alas, not a pawn, but a speck of dust on the nigga's trouser leg, which, if something happens, is not a pity and will be shaken off. They turned out to be so bold that they began to fear themselves. wassat

    -Soon in England, due to the huge number of Lithuanian citizens, Lithuanian will become the second official language. The British, in a panic that they cannot be understood with their English alone in the new language environment, are in favor of leaving the European Union (they are very afraid of the Lithuanians).

    Another "ex" shows a glimpse of common sense.
    Look how their retirement head clears up. The current politicians have no idea that after they "break the wood", they will have to put up.
    Only now Russia will not notice the loss of the Baltic states, and the Baltic states will be problematic without Russia.

    But the reverse situation also takes place ... For example, only negative news breaks through the information space, and notes of the form:

    Washington Post: At the parade, Russia will show a new "face" of armored vehicles
    Soviet tanks played an important role in the Battle of Kursk, which was a turning point in the entire Second World War. And now, at the Victory Day parade, just as relations with the West are so tense, Russia will present its new T-14 Armata tank, the Washington Post reports. According to the publication, few Western armies can boast of such new products.


    remain ignored. And it seems that the whole world is against us on a united front ... The site is turning into a censor of some kind ...

    "Lithuania can become just a pawn in a big political game."

    And now they only imagine themselves as queens! Verily, a small bug, but smelly!

    Actually, there are a lot of adequate, sensible people in the Baltics, but here’s the paradox: as soon as I got into politics, I’m in power, some kind of relay in my head turns off and that’s all - go and sit on an idiot and chase an idiot, and all together the parliament is called.
