The article analyses the main trends of Lithuanian foreign policy under President Dalia Grybauskaite. It focuses on the contradictory and inconsistent efforts of the Lithuanian president in shaping the so-called "new foreign policy", which is based on a multi-vector principle and departs from the unreserved focus on Washington. A comprehensive assessment of the Republic of Lithuania’s relations with leading partners in the EU / NATO is offered, together with an analysis of diplomatic activity in the East (Ukraine, Belarus and Russia) in the period from 2009 to 2014.
