Opinion: Will Russia's MH17 adventure end in the Hague Tribunal?

French-Lithuanian relationship: strategic partnership, overshadowed by „Veolia“

Lithuanian-French relationship is officially called a strategic partnership, close cultural cooperation is in place but economic relations and defence relations are rather scarce.
