Lithuanians are doomed to starve and drink

This month European media widely covered social situation in Lithuania. Statistics and reports made by the authoritative international organizations and research institutes give scary picture of life in the country.

DAILY MAIL reports that one of the devastating things is a high level of death rate: 14.8 deaths/1,000 population (2018 est.) in Lithuania. (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7426851/The-heaviest-drinkers-Europe-People-Lithuania-drink-15-LITRES-pure-alcohol-year.html) The causes of high mortality are the consequences of unresolved social problems and low standard of living.

According to Lithuanian journalist and writer of German origin Ingvar Henry Lotts, the most acute are the problems of youth. In his series of books “Lithuania – Without the Right to Happiness “he tells of the hopelessness that drives Lithuanian youth on the path of suicide, drug addiction, and crime. The more so, he underlines, that “in Lithuania, the deliberate genocide of the people continues. The law is not written for the servants of the law, and their arbitrariness is not punishable.”

He also writes that “Lithuanian doctors are strictly prohibited from providing medical and obstetric care to patients who are not registered in the clinic where they work. Even when a person is in trouble and dies, or when a woman suddenly gives birth.”

Many people are more than frustrated by their life and do not see the way out but to leave. Here is another big problem of Lithuania – immigration. The most promising part of the population chooses other countries for life, where living standards are higher.

A decline in living standards contributes to steps taken by the authorities. It seems as if a new President does not plan to improve the situation.

Thus, Gitanas Nausėda, on September, 4 met NATO officials in Brussels, his first discussions with the institution since taking office in July. In talks with the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Mr Nausėda pledged to increase defence spending.

“NATO has always been the safeguard of Lithuania’s security and defence,” said Mr Nausėda. “We are grateful for the commitment of the allies to defend and protect Lithuania and the Baltic States, as well as for the strengthening of the armed forces and the Baltic air police mission. Maintaining and strengthening close relations with our allies is and will remain my top priority. I assure you that Lithuania will make every effort to meet its defence funding and investment obligations. We already allocate two per cent of GDP to defence, and we plan to increase our defence spending up to 2.5 per cent by 2030.”

His speech demonstrates only one direction of his presidency – he plans to increase country’s defence spending despite the catastrophic social situation and unacceptable living standards. Lithuanians cold expect even lowering living standards because of the defence needs. Those Lithuanians who will not leave, are doomed to starve, drink and die due to the authorities’ populism.

That is where Russia was at in the 90’s… Now don’t you think if Lithuania got a man like Putin as President THAT IN 10 YEARS OR 15 YEARS THE LITHUANIANS WOULD NOT BE EVER SO HAPPY IF THEIR LIVES HAD IMPROVED… just like they have improved in RUSSIA….? … so when the Western media tells stories of people in Russia being not happy etc etc… they have NO IDEA what they are talking about !!!!

Sprats? Or is that now the main hi tech industry of Latvia?
I think in Estonia they make bast sandals for tourists still, but what tourist has the Baltick States on their bucket list?
I warned my now ex-friends 30 years ago that all the states ‘freed’ by Gorbachev would come crawling back to Russia or die.
I think I want to Crow; “Cock a doodle do!”

Can he be any wackier than Dalia? She was a real piece of work. She scared half of her own population, thinking she was a loose cannon ready to start a war at any moment.

You mean Dahlia Grabuskikeass of Fascist Toronto?
Too bad no one but Turdeau wanted her twin, the Fascist Freeland of the Nazi Ukraine, who is now FM of Canada.
Much to Canada’s dismay.
She is the worst appointment since the Orangutang who runs the Planet of the Apes said:
“Hey! Where is that guy who looks like Yosemite Sam from the cartoons. Bolton I think was his name?”

Joining the EU and having to pay $500million a year for US-led NATO presence has not improved conditions in Lithuania. Most women have left to clean toilets for the Germans or pretty teens to undercut French sex workers on the Riveria. Tourism is ruined due to troop movements to protect ‘against Russian aggression’.

The “European Values” (still not quite sure what it represents, my guess is easy living?) is but a dream for vast majority in EU, it relates only to the 1%. The newcomers from the East had to learn it the hard way (as always), once you turn your coat it leaves both sides dirty. Coming back to Mother Russia is the latest fashion trend in EU, been just delivered to the following public by the top model of EU neocons: Macron. I bet a lot of the easterners still have all the robe and accessories from that Trend in their… Read more »
