The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania has issued a statement on the situation in Ukraine. The Ministry abhors violence unleashed in the eastern regions of the country and criticizes Russia for failing to de-escalate the situation. Moreover, Lithuania pledges to provide humanitarian aid to the neighbouring country which has been in political upheaval since last December.
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.
