Lithuania will recalculate damages caused to the state by heavy rains last summer as farmers' losses due to the natural disaster are too low to qualify for EU aid, Lithuanian Interior Minister Eimutis Misiūnas said on Tuesday.

"Ministerial officials were told to look at damages caused by rain. If there is actual damage, we can put it into one basket," Misiūnas, who chairs the government's emergency situations commission, told reporters after its meeting.

"We will in no way overstate that damage," he added.
