“We are grateful to V. Rachlevičius for deciding to come to Lithuania, even though he joined the team for a short time. However, in the course of the election campaign, differences in approach regarding the principles of communication began to emerge. What is appropriate in the United Kingdom is not necessarily appropriate in Lithuania. The difference of opinion may have led to communication errors, so we regret that we had to part ways,” the statement reads.

Recently, I. Vēgėlė received a lot of criticism when, on March 8, she brought a bouquet of flowers tied with a ribbon in the colors of the Russian flag to Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonyta.
