Major English-speaking TV channels do not devote enough attention to the events in Ukraine, even though the battles are more blood-stained than in other countries, notes philosopher Gintautas Mažeikis. According to him, it is an important lesson to learn for Lithuania and other Baltic countries: the media can be very ignorant, even though there is a massive war going on with vague Russian attempts to intervene, all resulting in great numbers of victims. People interviewed by LRT.lt believe that such information in the media is essential, as it helps to prepare and organize a collective political pressure, and it is easier for governments to make decisions accordingly.
