Lithuanian FM Linas Linkevičius thinks the USA presidential elections suffer external influence

Linas Linkevičius is worried by the situation around presidential elections in the USA.

"I suppose this is not just a show (…). I am worried because it becomes more and more obvious that not only the USA but other countries as well are taking an active part in the elections. There were messages about this earlier, and this is really quite disturbing – and it should disturb the Americans. Obviously, they would like to decide by themselves inside their country, but there are signs that the elections are influenced from outside", - said Linas Linkiavichus in an interview to radio Ziniu radijas.

Foreign Minister also mentioned that the US citizens choose a president not just for themselves, but actually for the whole world, because the situation in Europe and many countries around the world depends on USA politics trends. As soon as both candidates have almost the same number of supporters, the result will depend on the votes of undecided citizens.
