Sunday, September 21, 2014
Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Linas Linkevičius is cautious about a truce between the Ukrainian government and pro-Russian separatists, announced on Saturday. The minister welcomed attempts to stop violence but warned that demilitarized buffer zones might lead to a frozen conflict.
A group of Lithuanian lawmakers propose that the Seimas should formally invite Polish, Latvian and Estonian parliamentarians to join initiatives to block electricity from the Astravyets nuclear power plant under construction in Belarus.
