Paluckas: The announced deadline for the return of land in Vilnius is absolutely unrealistic
“The announced deadline for the return of land in Vilnius by 2020 is absolutely unrealistic and sounds like a joke” said Vilnius vice-mayor Gintautas Paluckas.
The guest of the Political Salon added that in order to complete the agricultural reform it is necessary to adopt a number of important political decisions, which are the responsibility of the government and the Seimas, not the local government.
“Without the development of a new mechanism to compensate for lost land, we will never solve this problem” – as noticed by Vice Mayor of Vilnius, leader of Social Democrats Gintautas Paluckas.
