Euro adoption and crisis in Ukraine reduced Lithuanians' optimism, according to poll

In December 2014 only every third Lithuanian claimed that the situation in the country has been improving. Compared with November 2014, the number of optimists decreased by 6 percent. According to sociologist and lecturer of Vilnius University, Professor Romas Lazutka, the outburst of pessimism at the end of the year was related to the change of national currency and the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.
