The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) condemns the bloody assault near Marinka village, close to the city of Donetsk, on 3 June by the Russia-backed separatists who used heavy weaponry, which had to be withdrawn according to the package of measures of the Minsk Agreements reached on 12 February 2015.

"Any aggressive acts or attempts to expand controlled territory by Russia-backed separatists and Russian forces are in violation of the Minsk Agreements while the implementation of the essential provisions lies with the responsibility of Russia in particular. MFA of Lithuania emphasizes that the Minsk Agreements carry fundamental importance in resolving the conflict in the Donbass," the statement reads.

Lithuania consistently supports Ukraine's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, Lithuania's MFA said.
