Duties that Never End. President's Diaries" - such will be the title of a memoir book by former present of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus that will come out in early 2015. The book tells about the events of Lithuanian political and public life over the last five years.
Former Lithuanian president Valdas Adamkus expresses his disappointment about the estranged relationship with Poland, and the demands of the Polish minority. He also shares insights and memories about his own personal relations with state leaders he worked with during his presidency, while appreciating a bold yet risky stance of Lithuania's current leadership during the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
In August six years ago, as everyone's eyes were on Beijing Summer Olympics, Russia invaded Georgia. Military actions between the two countries were short, but they have gained more significance since then as many now see the conflict as dress rehearsal for Russia's annexation of Crimea.
