Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite was the only EU leader on Saturday to abstain when the Donald Tusk-Federica Mogherini duo was approved to fill two top jobs, several EU sources told EUobserver. Grybauskaite had publicly questioned Mogherini's credentials to become the next EU foreign affairs representative because of her pro-Russia stance.
