Mindaugas Bastys. Artūras Skardžius. And finally, Petras Gražulis. These are the three pillars of the Seimas‘ shame that this term’s parliamentarians could nail themselves to. Of course, that’s if they had shame or self-respect. But they don’t. Don’t resign. Don’t yield their mandates. Only make empty statements like some Viktoras Pranckietis or Vytautas Bakas.

By mentioning these two names, I do not seek by any account to form the impression that Seimas Speaker V. Pranckietis, who represents God knows whom and Seimas National Security and Defence Committee chairman V. Bakas are the ones, who are most to blame. By no means. Neither do they decide anything, nor can they do anything, bar voting. Thankfully, they do not sell theirs yet.
