During a visit of representatives of Ukrainian trade unions in Vilnius on Tuesday, international secretary of Lithuania's Solidarity Trade Union, Daiva Kvedaraitė, told journalists that efforts will initially be be focused on helping Ukrainian workers who are members of trade unions.

"We will spread the message to our colleagues in Europe and work hard to knock to their hearts and their good will. It will be a joint campaign with European trade unions, I believe," said Kvedaraitė.

Speaking at a joint news conference, Mykhailo Volynets, the president of the confederation of Ukraine's independent trade unions, said that the Donbass region will soon be short on food. In his words, insufficient attention from the central administration may force some people to join the separatists.
