Please also heed the appeal to stop financial aid to Lithuania.
Shame on the so called "Lithuanian Cyclists' Community"! (LDB in Lithuanian, or LCC in English.)
In year 2007 they maliciously deleted these pages from the former location here: "http://www.dviratis.lt/andrius", and "http://www.bicycle.lt/andrew".
Below you find an appeal to all financial donors, and people of good will to stop the "destructivity" of this de facto illegal organization of automobilists. Yes, they are mostly car owners, and car apologists. It is actually a club of 10 members. Though they claim to represent the entire Lithuania.
The appeals are followed by the original web page. Do you see in it a reason to delete it? The part about politics I added later. It was not there, when they deleted the web page.
In autumn of 2015 another lover of state power deleted my web pages andrew.konferencijos.lt, andrius.konferencijos.lt, and the same under konferencija.lt, konf.lt. He holds the 2 domains.
As a reward the state gave him a fat job at a Lithuanian branch of bank Barclay's.
In year 2009 the state lured the bank to Lithuania with a gift of 20 mln. Lt (7,6 mln. $). They mockingly called this gift a foreign investment into Lithuania.
The bank, at its prime, was worth 850000 mln. $ (850 billion $). They did not need the money. It was rather a sign of loyalty of criminals one to another: our state to the bank.
After a few days the state classified the sum a "trade" secret.
The state used the bank as a comfortable retreat for their accomplices. - Lazy, fat, well paid job.
In 2010 they employed the keeper of domains konferencijos.lt, konferencija.lt, and konf.lt. It took them 5 years to force him to shut me up. All that time he did not entirely refuse to do so. As his belief in my cause faded, his sabotage of my web page, and e-mail increased. He turned into an accomplice of criminals gradually, as their payroll, and constant demands (propaganda) gradually obscured his mind. It is very easy to become insensitive, when you feed too well.
Sadly, konferencijos.lt, konferencija.lt, and konf.lt is a continuation of osf.lt - a site of
discussions by mailing lists, kept by "Open Society fund". George Soros
established the branch of the Fund in Lithuania in 1992. He is a speculator on financial markets of the world.
He failed to establish open society in Lithuania. Instead, all the time he fed
a bunch of conformists in the administrations of the Fund, and of organizations it sponsors.
Several years ago the Fund supposedly stopped activity. It continued funding to most organisations, which it created. But ceased new actions, and shed some existing ones, including the discussions on osf.lt.
That's when the keeper of konferencijos.lt, konferencija.lt, and konf.lt took over. But he was far from open society. He championed malicious, ignorant, nonchalant, stubborn, mediocre complaisance.
It is one of evil creations of the Fund - "Nongovernmental organisations Information and Support Center" (NISC) - who expelled me from the mailing list "NGO" at konferencijos.lt on 25 of August, 2007. Their reason was that I predicted an oncoming economic crisis, and banking collapse of 2008.
In year 2016 I established the web page elsewhere. It lasted but briefly for 2 days: 8-10 of October. - Right before, and during elections to parliament. Another lover of state power deleted it too. For half a year he dragged his feet to allow me to establish the web page. He thought he would influence elections this way. He miscalculated. He was too late. Many previous years of my "propaganda" already had an effect. All the main parties lost. When in the morning of October 10 he saw the results, he was furious...On March 5, 2017 I finally established the web page here.
Appeal to all people of good will and sanity. Appeal to international sponsors of Lithuanian Cyclists Community (LDB, LCC).
Please stop your support for LDB (or LCC in English) - the keeper of bicycle.lt, and dviratis.lt domains.
This page of mine was deleted by Lithuanian Cyclists' Community (LDB, LCC).
This took place on November 28, 2007.
They (LDB, LCC) can't stand the criticism, which I bring on them on the other pages here:
(my other site in Lithuanian language).
I do not discriminate them. I have invited them many times for a discussion. If they are able to prove me wrong, I may agree to withdraw my comments.
But they are lost for arguments.
In the best traditions of Lithuanian touchiness they simply deleted my Web pages.
But do not let the appearance of touchiness fool you. LDB (or LCC in English) has a quite practical goal: money, greed, and opportunism. Scoundrels have hijacked this organization.
Linas Vainius - one of the members of Lithuanian "Green movement", and now the new president of LDB, is willing to sacrifice his own reputation not just for the sake of it... He seeks to stifle my criticism of bureaucrats, and of himself...
Why would he do so?.. In the past he colluded with bureaucrats, and "marionettes" of construction companies. He was not alone. He did so together with the whole council of LDB.
My criticism is a direct threat to that collusion. I also achieved that public stopped donating money to LDB. People also stopped designating the 2% of income tax to LDB (which they can do by law). Some 3000 Litas per year stopped reaching the coffers of LDB. This is much. Consider that this money had no strings attached. LDB can spend it as they please.
Other income of LDB comes from bureaucrats (Lithuanian, and European Union). It always has conditions, targets, projects attached to it.
Linas Vainius seeks to launder the image of LDB... if not now, then with time at least. So that the money starts flowing again, and he can again indulge in providing tours, and other favours for his accomplices, members of LDB, bureaucrats, and alike.
Even a few months of disruption to my web pages is a great benefit to LDB. Meanwhile this organization has already started to sprawl anonymous web sites, pseudo web groups - its own proxies. These new sites are designed to glorify the LDB, and imitate plurality. Also they imitate some information services related to bicycling. The dubious content may not fool a self-conscious cyclist. But newcomers, and bureaucrats may be impressed. Spreading profanation of cycling, stifling education is again beneficial to LDB. The more stupid are folks, the easier it is to extract something from them.
The conclusion is that Lithuanian Cyclists Community is an illegal organisation.
It is actually a hybrid of an exclusive club, and a construction company of bicycle paths.
It must be prosecuted, or at least reregistered as such.
I already explained most of this stuff on the mailing list here:
http://susirašom.saugokmedi.lt/dviratis/ - May and fall of 2007
The language is in Lithuanian. Sorry. You may ask me for a comment in English directly. See the end of this my page on how to write to me.
In this paragraph I translate a few statements.
Why I call them "scoundrels"?
That's for many reasons. Most I mentioned above. A few extra comments are below.
The latest affair was about the congress of LDB. It took place twice:
May 17th, 2007: http://www.bicycle.lt/repository/lt/LDB_programa_2007x.htm
This primary congress failed to attain the quorum. So it was held the second time:
November 17th, 2007: http://www.bicycle.lt/lt/main/ldb/suvaziavimas
When the council of LDB learnt of my proposals at the primary congress, they decided to block me from the secondary one. They held a secret meeting on June 2nd, 2007. There they expelled me from LDB. They informed me only a few days before the secondary congress. Furthermore, they introduced a fee on participation of about 20Lt. This is a substantial sum. For example, it exceeds, or is on the scale of the fare (transportation) to the venue. The fee is illegal. Members of LDB have a right to participate without any fee. The fee was introduced to scare potential participants away. Only their own inner circle was expected.
For non-members the fee was 50Lt. Imagine a person, who would like to become a new member of LDB, and vote in support of my proposals... This fee discourages him from attending. He is not sure if we would be in majority, he is also not sure, if congress would not rig the proceedings so that his participation is blocked. For example they could refuse to accept his membership, or bring up essential voting before new members are admitted. He is not inclined to pay 50Lt just to be an unfortunate spectator.
The council of LDB withheld my proposals from other members. So no one even knew the agenda. No one even knew it is important to participate, and to come despite of the fee.
How the money is misappropriated? LDB can't take money for dubious causes directly. So they established the secondary project:
"Baltic Sea Cycling"
They asked for money from European Union. The European sponsor project is named "InterRegIIIB":
Now that the secondary project is in place, it in turn sponsors the congress of LDB - the meeting of members, and their enjoyment of sauna at a countryside resort.
Another secondary project is the collection of satellite organizations (proxies) around the LDB.
All run by the same people. For example: "Du ratai", "Dvir Info", and maybe some others.
One particular such organization serves a rent of bicycles, and other equipment (see the web sites nuoma.dviratis.lt, rent.bicycle.lt).
Sales of equipment is also performed. But you barely discern who does what.
On the whole, the appearance is that the commerce is done by LDB. So, all appears to be legal...
But when you investigate, you may discover those proxy organisations, and even
commercial companies, like "Baltic Cycle", UAB.
All these entities are mere covers for the same people - members of LDB gang.
As I explain above, the LDB serves exclusively to commerce, and entertainment: bike paths, construction, tourism (the industry), tourist travel to "conferences" (for LDB members, and bureaucrats), sales and rent of equipment. Political activity is stifled. The activity of LDB does not benefit the public. It rather benefits the mentioned proxies, construction companies, and bureaucrats. LDB is funded by public money. But LDB is a free tool of promotion, and commerce for the mentioned accomplices. Member fees, exempt from taxes, are also public money.
The English pages, which you are reading, and the mentioned Lithuanian pages constitute my propaganda of bicycling. By terminating them, LDB terminates its commitment to their own declared goals of promoting a bicycle, and discouraging cars.
Considering the above, I strongly urge all foreign and domestic financial sponsors to stop any dealing with Lithuanian Cyclists Community (LDB). I also urge you to appeal to the Ministry of Justice of Lithuania, and ask them to close the LDB down, because this organization is no longer true to its declared "programme" - the goals, which it was registered with.

Saint Petersburg, Russia. May-June 2003:
Plenty of visiting of the town proper, and of the environs 30km in circumference, including Kronstadt.
- Letters of February 2006. Hitch-hiking through Europe. Prey of thieves and thugs.
On January 5, 2016 the commissioner of Europos Union on security Federica Mogherini
appointed Kestutis Lanchinskas as chief of the mission to establish law enforcement
of criminals onto Ukraine (Kęstutis Lančinskas).
Kestutis Lanchinskas is a criminal. He was chief of Police department, which covered region of Vilnius in Lithuania. That department is a criminal organisation... As are the entire Police of Lithuania.
Federica Mogherini did receive such reports. She deleted them without reading.
She, and countless other highest and lowest officials run a criminal gang.
They hijacked the entire state of Lithuania.
They are accused of crimes against humanity, and numerous other crimes.
They attack civilians routinely, viciously, on mass.
Chief prosecutor, and Service of Special Investigations (STT) conceal this criminal case from the public... ... and from scarce remnants of defeated, and subdued elements of law enforcement...
Nobody saw her smash even 1 brick. Perhaps her "black belt" in karate is a fake, just like fake is anything she does.
She mostly eats, gains fat, does nothing, and rests.
Occasionally she succumbs to a rush of gibberish, blabber, useless talk.
Today she looks like a thick barrel of trash.
Each year she receives 5000 complaints about corrupt officials, plunder, and torture.
She never replied to any of them. Not 1.
This is an official statement from her Chancellery.
Anyone of you, who is not as lazy as to do real talk, rather than fake interview, can obtain the same official statement from Lithuanian state.
In her stead her Chancellery themselves send all the fake replies. Often they do not reply, ignore the complaints.
They routinely breach chapter 89 of Lithuanian Constitution.
It says: nobody shall act in stead of Dalia Grybauskaite the president.
In a line up of presidents of the world she belongs closer to the end of the queue, in the company of:
Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe,
Kim Jong-un of North Korea.
Will write more later.
Questions are welcome.

If you have no response from me, then this means that I have not received any letter from you. You have to repeat.
You may also post a message to me below. I may respond here, if you provide no other means.
