Talking Europe

Dalia Grybauskaite, President of the Republic of Lithuania

Lithuania, the largest of the three Baltic states, handed over the rotating presidency of the EU to Greece on January 1st. Dalia Grybauskaite, Lithuania’s president, calls Ukraine's decision to turn down a deal with the EU - just days before Lithuania hosted the much-anticipated Vilnius Summit - a "historic mistake”. She sees the hand of Moscow behind Kiev’s last-minute U-turn, but believes the pro-EU protests show that a majority of Ukrainians want closer ties with Europe.
