Respublika: Mykolas Romeris University Professor Antanas Buračas Discusses EU Aid

buracas1 In the August 17th issue of the Lithuanian daily, "Respublika," MRU's Faculty of Economics and Finance Management Banking & Investments Dept. Professor Antanas Buračas expresses his opinion about EU aid.

Prof. Buračas, in the article titled, "Lithuania's Tri-colour Flag Unnecessary..." says that he never heard that during Soviet times, when roads were under construction, it would be trumpeted that reconstruction is "supported by the Soviet Union."

He said that today, when advertising EU aid for reconstruction on roadside billboards, it reminds us of the price of being a member of the EU. However, he said there is no mention of how various shysters embezzle and pocket these funds.
