Kaliningrad Believes New Lithuanian President Will Maintain Friendly Relations with Russia

The change of president in Lithuania will not have any detrimental effect on the good relations between Russia and Lithuania. This announcement was made today by co-chairman of the Russian-Lithuanian council for cooperation between the Kaliningrad Region and the regions of Lithuania and Deputy Governor of the Kaliningrad Region Mikhail Tsikel in an exclusive interview with a Rosbalt correspondent.

'We respect the choice of the Lithuanian people, who have shown their preference for Rolandas Paskas,' he said. 'I am sure that the new president will maintain the continuity and loyalty that Lithuania has shown in its relations with Russia and the Kaliningrad Region. I think that Lithuania with its new president will scrupulously uphold the agreements on the Kaliningrad issue, which we reached at the Russia-EU summit in Brussels last November.'

Mr Tsikel added that he believes Mr Paskas knows Russia even better than the last president Valdas Adamkus. Mr Paskas studied in Leningrad and was in the Soviet team for aerobatics. 'Judging by his initial comments he seems to want a constructive relationship with both the EU and Europe,' said the deputy governor. 'We are hoping to organize a meeting between Governor Vladimir Yegorov and Mr Paskas to discuss potential links with our neighbours, who are our most active business partners.'

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
