“Ukrainians are Europeans. This is unquestionable and we always emphasize this, but the Ukrainian people are also responsible for Ukraine's success and the country's Euroatlantic integration. Their willingness to reform and fight corruption will determine their success,” said Linkevičius.

Kravchuk said that Ukraine had irreversibly chosen the European path and that it will never falter from it, as that is the will of the majority of the Ukrainian people. He thanked Lithuania for its steady support of Kiev in a hard period for Ukraine and thanked Western countries for a tough stance on the aggressor and on supporting Ukraine.
