"The ideals of the Maidan are still alive in the hearts of Ukrainian people who continue defending their homeland and their right to determine their own destiny. Lithuania supports the people of Ukraine and their choice," the president said.

According to the president, the democratic community must not leave the Ukrainian people alone, because today they are fighting not only for their own state, but also for Western values, peace and security in Europe.

Before the March of Dignity, the Lithuanian head of state met with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, German President Joachim Gauck, European Council President Donald Tusk, and other European leaders.

The leaders participating in the commemorative events viewed the Russian military equipment confiscated by Ukrainians. The equipment had been used in attacks against Ukraine and its people.

Over 100 protesters were killed in Pro-European protests in Maidan that started in Ukraine's capital Kiev in November 2013 and lasted until February 2014.
