Disinfo: Lithuanian President Grybauskaite has become a PR-agent for Ukraine

Summary

Lithuanian President Grybauskaite has become a PR-agent for political show business of Ukraine. She also supports Kiev’s high-profile information campaigns, aimed at ensuring the European solidarity in the struggle against the “Russian aggressors”. This is proved by the fact that she met with Ukrainian singer Jamala.

Disproof

The fact that Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite met with the winner of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, Ukrainian singer Jamala, is no evidence for such claims.
