"We must do everything not to allow that conflict organized by the Kremlin to expand and to stop it in Ukraine. We must stop it, to help politically, economically, by sending specialists and providing military assistance. We must do everything we can to stop the Kremlin in Ukraine and isolate the conflict," Vaitiekūnas said during he award ceremony.
