Rarely do I find publications whose major goals match my own as closely as VilNews

Boris Bakunas

Rarely do I find publications whose major goals match my own as closely as VilNews, an e-magazine that strives to encourage understanding and mutual cooperation among people around the globe while preserving what is best in a country's national identity. VilNews is such a publication.

Pulling extraordinary minds & brains together for the purpose of “rescuing” Lithuania

Barbara Rapaport

I have been reading some of the most interesting articles since the VilNews launch.

What has impressed me the most is the fact that you have been able to pull extraordinary ‘minds & brains’ together from all over the world for the purpose of ‘rescuing’ Lithuania as a nation, and fundamentally improve its current practices with respect to economic and political justice, business practices, educational sustainability and resilience and much, much more.
Just wanted to say one more time THANK YOU!!!

I’m a huge fan now

Giedrė Jotautaitė

I read your e-magazine every morning and I think it’s great 

I’m a huge fan now. http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/images/blank.gif

I was born in Vilnius, studied at Vilnius University, but moved to Milan to work. Now I’m saving money to buy a beautiful flat in the centre of Vilnius, because one day I will surely come back home!

>From my point of view Lithuania is doing quite good, if to compare with Italy where one now can feel the crisis more.

Best wishes and kiss,

"VilNews changes the world’s perception of Lithuania!"
The woman I spoke with at the national day celebration at the Norwegian Embassy in Vilnius on 17 May had much good to say about our VilNews e-magazine, and I do not deny that it felt good to hear such words – confirming that what we have tried to describe and gain an understanding of, in and about the 'Lithuanian', has been so well received, perceived and understood by one of our readers. This is what she said:
"VilNews contributes more to Lithuania's international reputation than any political leader or advertising campaign has done for this country over the last twenty years. Soviet Union's attack on Lithuania in January 1991 led naturally to an enormous press coverage all over the world, but attention was soon gone and Lithuania did nothing to exploit 'the commercial value' of the great interest that we were exposed to by then. And since then, most of the international press coverage of Lithuania has been negative, characterized by the crimes carried out by individuals and gangs here.

Then VilNews appears and suddenly we have access to a unique publication that explains Lithuania to the world in a completely different, clever way that makes the country sound and look very interesting again. Even those times when you criticize various aspects it is understood that the criticism is based on well-founded ideas, fairness and a balanced approach.

You've just changed the image and perception of Lithuania. I am also very impressed with the unusual combination you present the news, blogs, comments, debates and a vast background material - not least that of historical character.

It is also very good to see so many of your readers actually write and communicate actively through the channel you offer them through VilNews. I've actually never seen anything like it anywhere in the world. I recommend now VilNews to all my contacts around the world. I wish fervently that the nation's leaders would study the publication very carefully, and follow up much of what you write and propose."

The VilNews "Culture and Events" section serves as a model for others to follow
In the information age, each nation has an opportunity contribute and to learn from all others, thus helping to create what may become a world culture that shares and respects diversity in a true global community. A worthy goal indeed! And one that the online publication VilNews pursues. The VilNews "Culture and Events" section serves as a model for others to follow.

What makes VilNews unique is its sincere effort to transcend the disputes that have divided nations
What makes VilNews unique is its sincere effort to transcend the disputes that have divided nations. After reading an article in VilNews that matches your interests, please write a comment. Creativity flourishes when people are willing to share their ideas in a helpful, positive way. Never before in history have we had an opportunity to foster understanding and respect among people -- and to learn from them.

I’ve heard that Aage Myhre, the Editor-in-Chief, is terrific guy. He goes out of his way to publish both comments and articles from new contributors.

Also, never hesitate to post on my Wall. For many years, I felt like I was living in an intellectual and spiritual vacuum, but now I find new interests, thoughts, and opportunities coming my way like never before.

VilNews is the best online publication I've seen about Lithuania's history, culture, geography, and its resurgence on the world stage

Boris Bakunas

Two hundred years of oppression have scattered Lithuanians among all parts of the world. You will find Lithuanian communities in North and South America, in South Africa, in Australia, and Asia. VilNews is the best online publication I've seen about Lithuania's history, culture, geography, and its resurgence on the world stage. VilNews seeks to bring Lithuanians, their descendants, and people interested in Lithuania together in a cooperative manner, fostering good relations among Lithuania, its neighbors in the European community as well as the rest of the world.

Congratulations on your first Anniversary.

And by the way: By not resorting to 6, 000 pages, you have certainly saved many lovely trees.

Keep up the good work and all the best.
