EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety Vytenis Povilas Andriukaitis has slammed discussions in Lithuania about selection criteria for refugee resettlement. According to Andriukaitis, who was Lithuania's healthcare minister before taking the job with the EU Commission, said that selections among people in the face of the current humanitarian crisis would be immoral and go against everything Europe holds as principles.
