On the eve of the epidemic, Lithuania found itself without health care and food supplies


Reforms, which can undoubtedly be called European, led the small Baltic republic to the fact that if the epidemiological situation worsens, it will be left without doctors and essential foodstuffs.


After the dwarf “Baltic tiger” medical reform and “optimization” of medical facilities was carried out in 2005, today there is a shortage of virologists and immunologists in Lithuania, and the medical staff of peripheral medical facilities, who had to work without protective equipment, were at risk.

Therefore, the head of the Ministry of Health, Aureliyus Veriga, allowed to attract senior students of medical institutes to work, and the Minister of Defense Raimundas Karoblis announced his readiness to attract the military to assist physicians.

Kazis Starkevičius, the former head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Agriculture, added fuel to the fire, who publicly stated that Lithuania does not have strategic food supplies.

According to him, today the entire food supply of a small, but very independent republic, consists of grain and sugar, and all other products - cereals, canned food, etc., are eaten.

Thus, it is possible that in the case of a negative scenario for Lithuania, Russia may face the issue of providing humanitarian assistance to a neighboring country, which is one of the most Russophobic countries in the region.

      Think and refuse. You have to pay for everything. Russophobia is an expensive thing, from which the farmers decided that they could afford it. And the rest in the European collective farm is no better.

        He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly; but he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

        Let not the hand of the giver be scanty.

        Everything can be, and I am not eager to help those who want my help, but pride should not overshadow humanity.
        Too many nuances to state unequivocally: for nothing ...

          The limitrophes were sown generously, especially in the "Triebolt Extinctions", what are we reaping? The nuclear power plant was presented with this, and they bark at Russia more than their sisters. Pride must be punished.

            You are right, many bark, but not all, some are silent.

      There is money for a "war" with Russia.

      G. Nauseda on defense spending: crises come and go, but the geopolitical situation of Lithuania does not change.

        Here, as a question, it is posed - Their problem is LIVING poorly, their choice, yourself, definitely yourself, live whatever you want. But if they are EXTINCING from an infection that is scary to us, then how can one help to get rid of a common infection? After all, it’s better to beat the enemy in a foreign territory, at least to understand how best to get rid of him ...
        This is the help that is in our interests.

      Enemies also need help, but for money. As "allies" of the USSR, Lend-Lease was supplied - for gold.
      Moreover - they called themselves enemies of Russia. May it be so!

    What to do - they have such a "civilizational choice".
    They were offered to choose - they chose.
    Let them "smoke bamboo" according to their "civilizational choice."

    Wherever the "victorious" West came, only fragments were left of Soviet medicine, and suddenly it turns out that countries are not ready for an epidemic ... what are they doing?
