That the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union is backed by the shareholders of various companies is a circumvention of the law, which not only the Central Electoral Commission (VRK) should take interest in, but also security institutions, Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats Seimas group member Gintarė Skaistė told LRT Radio, lrt.lt writes.
