      Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, attended the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels and discussed the Russian aggression against Ukraine and the situation in the Middle East.

      “Western fear and moderation look like an invitation for Russia to escalate the situation, both in Ukraine and in the EU and NATO member states. We must allow Ukraine to strike back if Russia escalates. We must join the initiatives of real assistance to Ukraine and implement them as soon as possible,” the head of Lithuania’s diplomacy said. 

      Lithuania has expressed public support for initiatives by France, Germany, and the Czech Republic to support Ukraine. In addition, Lithuania has taken concrete steps to aid the country devastated by Russia as soon as possible. 

      “We must immediately redirect profits from frozen Russian assets to bolster Ukraine’s military defence,” Landsbergis noted, urging his counterparts to pass the EU legislation on military support to Ukraine without further delay. 

      During the Foreign Affairs Council meeting, Landsbergis shared his insights after the joint visit of the Foreign Ministers of Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, and Lithuania to Georgia. Together with all his EU counterparts, Landsbergis discussed the situation in this country after the adoption of the ‘Foreign Agents’ law, the repression of Georgian civil society, and the EU’s response to it. 

      “This law is only one example of Georgia’s greater democratic erosion, turning away from European values and the path to the EU. The EU must review its relations with Georgia in this light,” Landsbergis said during the discussion.
