  • Reading between the lines I would assume the visit to Lithuania is to speak with the opposition leader. Then go to Moscow and the Trump administration will just tell the losers in the Kremlin what they already know. Good they’re going directly to Lukashenko’s boss.

    • The headquarters of ex-presidential candidate Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya announced her possible meeting with US First Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Bigan, as Interfax reports with reference to a source in the headquarters of Tsikhanouskaya.

      “Indeed, Svetlana is planning a certain meeting, but I do not know the personalities and the agenda,” Olga Kovalkova, Tsikhanouskaya’s associate, confirmed the information.

    This is one part of the trip he can cross off his list. Nothing good will come out of meeting this bunch of losers.
