Only when the first tentative swallows announcing a new spring in the Polish-Lithuanian relations when the brake immediately became active who want to derail the process. In Lithuania impossible to distinguish at least some centers opposed to normalize relations with the most important partner in the European Union and NATO.
Street rabble (the brake in the form of angry people), controlled by various defenders on duty “Tevyne” in front of the dangers lurking on it like a double “in” documents “locals”, governed by his laws – roars, defies, will prompted mouth chanting slogans corresponding intellectual level, and there is therefore little impact on the political process in our country.
What else from the brake of the highest offices of state. Those working in private offices, have a real potential to impede the Government’s relations with Poland reset announced and other countries in the region. President Dalia Grybauskaite, who, after the Government changed its real face clearly, unearthed a wysforowała on the forehead of the Pack. While in the previous term of government even tried to create a European leader, the only parliamentary majority does not solve the problems of national minorities in accordance with the spirit and standards of the Old World, while in the new reality does not even try to pretend. Behind the veil of European president increasingly emerging face of the Lithuanian Moczar (General PRL, which combined the features of both the orthodox communist and extreme nationalist). President increasingly emerges to face Lithuania Moczar himself (General PRL, which combine features of an orthodox communist and extreme nationalistic). President shamelessly flirting with the extreme right, is pushing for the Government to recognize this is not shown on any concessions to poles, and even declares cooperation with new Metropolitan Archbishop of Vilnius in … lithuanization of Vilnius Region.
Another brake just announced his return to big politics. Vytautas Landsbergis, because of the question, intends to apply to become chairman of the party conservatives. And this is not a joke. Venerable leader of the radical wing of the “Tevynes Sajungos” as the most seriously intends to take over the largest opposition party. If the 80-year-old made it happen, would be a sort of Lithuanian Petain. The legendary General Petain invested as Prime Minister, that this saved the country by Nazi aggression. Petain took the helm, but only in order to sign a disgraceful peace with the Third Reich. Landsbergis – if returns – intends to fight for the lost, he says, of the Conservative Party and to give proper resist external threats (read Russian and Polish). Certainly would become yet another destructive element of Lithuanian policy pushing our country to the margins of the EU, Lithuania insulating region.
Unfortunately, the mutual gravity brake is large. If you join in a common front, they can become dangerous Lithuania meteorite that could explode from the inside.
