Protests in Moldova won't start a revolution

The news portal Delfi doesn't agree with comparisons between the demonstrations in the Moldovan capital of Chişinău and the fall of the communists in Romania in 1989: "It is doubtful that there will be a new revolution in Moldova. There were hardly any protests in other cities and the government was able to play down the demonstrations as hooliganism. In the meantime the protests have mostly petered out, the opposition is denying any responsibility and the president describes the demonstrators as fascists against whom violence should be used if necessary. … Initially the events encouraged hope among the many Moldovans who now live abroad, but that hope has given way to disappointment. If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger - that's what they say - and now the government can claim this of itself. But what will happen next?"

Polish-Lithuanian cooperation

The Lithuanian news portal Delfi looks at strategic cooperation between Lithuania and Poland: "One gets the impression that the Lithuanians care more about the economy or the infrastructure, for example the construction of a long-planned electricity bridge or the 'Via Baltica' motorway, while the Poles are more concerned about the situation of the Polish minority in and around Vilnius. ... It is striking that between 1997 and 2004, Poland either created or modernised no less than twelve electricity bridges which connect its power network with those in Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Sweden and Ukraine. And these bridges were not even classed as strategic projects. They were not considered state priorities, and neither the president nor the German chancellor nor the Swedish king wasted a word on them."
