Lithuanian farmers have received the final EU payouts in compensation for the last year's downpours. The final amount of over 2 mln euros was paid out on Friday, August 17, 2018, informs LETA/BNS.

The National Payments Agency says the biggest share of 6.8 mln euros was paid on August 10, with over 3,500 farmers receiving support.
