Lithuanian ambassador to Ukraine: Russia only understands the language of force
Friday, August 29, 2014
The West should respond to Russia's direct military invasion in Ukraine by continued stronger sanctions, but the most efficient language should be "from the position of force," says Lithuania's Ambassador to Ukraine Petras Vaitiekūnas.
An incident in which a smoke grenade was thrown at the Lithuanian embassy in Kiev could have been a provocation instigated by Russia, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in Vilnius on Monday.
The Belarusian airspace was last week violated by a light airplane P46T piloted by a Danish citizen that had taken off from the Vilnius airport, chiefs of the Lithuanian state company Oro Navigacija (Air Navigation) and the Civil Aviation Administration.
