Lithuanian MP rejects opposition's accusations of EU softness on Russia
Tuesday, February 17, 2015
Gediminas Kirkilas, Deputy Speaker of the Lithuanian parliament and Chairman of the Committee on European Affairs, a social democrat, says he does not agree with the criticism of right-wing parties that accuse the European Union of being too soft on Russia.
Vytautas Landsbergis, Lithuania's first post-Soviet leader and honorary chairman of the conservative Homeland Union, says that the Minks agreement for ceasefire between Kiev's forces and Moscow-supported separatist fighters in eastern Ukraine, which was signed on Thursday, is worse than the Munich agreement of 1938.
