Several last weeks with the e-mails from Eligijus Masiulis, former Liberal Movement Party leader and who is currently under criminal investigation, a scandal of e-mails from Ms. President with a „tulip“ pseudonym, hidden political influences from the MG Baltic corporation and leaked files from the State Security Department about politico-business relations at least partially opened the curtain of the backstage „kitchen“ of Lithuanian politics. Although it was not a big surprise to the insiders of national politics that instead of kitchen of politics we might be brought suddenly to the Augean stables. And exactly this has happened. A smell and picture here are far from nice.
