Ukraine will never accept the loss of Crimea. Valery Zhovtenko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Lithuania, said in the exclusive interview to ELTA news agency that only negotiation measures would be used to solve the issue of Crimea. In case it fails, the issue should be taken to international court, whereas the option to use military force is not being considered.

If Moscow forced Minsk to export its oil products via Russian railways and ports, that would be economically unviable and dangerous for Belarus, Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis said on Thursday.
Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis says that Vilnius and Warsaw are gradually moving to a new stage of better relations and hopes that Lithuanian politicians will solve the highly contentious issue of the spelling of Polish names in Lithuanian personal documents.
The leaked recordings of conversations between Poland's former foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski and then CEO of oil company Orlen, Jacek Krawiec, about investments in Mažeikiai oil refinery in Lithuania do not reflect the position of the current Polish government, Warsaw said on Wednesday.
