Tomas Janeliūnas. The EU budget – let’s not pretend it’s a victory

After rather lengthy negotiations on the EU Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027 (or simply – the EU Budget), upon returning from Brussels, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda received a crown of oak leaves. The poorly directed and reeking of farce greeting is a very symbolic summary of the entire result of the EU budget. Press releases were filled with messages on how fortunate Lithuanian farmers were and that the combined sum of allocated funding should be larger than during the 2014-2020 period. Just that between these optimistic lines there lie numerous less positive news pieces.
