European Commission (EC) officials have promised to Lithuanian diplomats to remove a poster hanging in the EC building in Brussels which sports the Communist hammer and sickle.
“In the wake of our probe, the European Commission notified us there had been a poster competition, which was co-financed by the commission. EC officials promised us it would be taken down,” Arūnas Vinčiūnas, ambassador-at-large at Lithuania’s permanent mission at the European Union (EU), told BNS on Monday.
In his words, the poster was hanging in the main offices of the EC, Berlaymont. A photograph published in the British media last week reveals that the hammer and sickle was placed next to Christian, Islamic, Judaic and other religious symbols, which formed a five-pointed star.
