The survey by Spinter Tyrimai for the delfi.lt news website asked people to express their opinion whether Lithuania's new president should meet with the Russian counterpart and provided several possible answers.

Some 8 percent chose the answer "yes, he or she should purposefully seek a meeting at his or her initiative". 36 percent picked "yes, he or she should try doing this if an opportunity comes along", and 20 percent chose the answer "yes, but only after Russia's invitation and without any prior conditions."

19 percent said "no", and another 15 percent did not know what to say or did not respond.

The survey involved residents aged 18-75, with 60 percent polled in person and 40 percent online.
