VILNIUS -- Lithuania's government has pout forward a 2012 budget for the country that will include a small slash to expenditures.

The plan will cut ministry budgets by around 2% in a bid to save the state some 200 million litas.

“For various reasons there are some institutions with growing allocation, as well as some with decreasing allocation; the overall pattern is that those 2 percent were neither drastic nor cruel,” said Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius.
