Why is Lukoil really leaving Lithuania?

Just before Christmas, Lukoil president Vagit Alekperov announced that Lukoil would start to withdraw from Lithuania and Latvia. However, for a number of Lithuanian economists it appeared strange that one of the main reasons why Lukoil said that it had decided to withdraw from Lithuania and Latvia was not linked to the company‘s move to performance optimization and a switch on the wholesale oil market, but rather the anti-Russian mood in the two countries, alfa.lt reports.
