It is about obstructing and preventing the May 25 elections”, - said Ambassador Raimonda Murmokaitė, Permanent Representative of Lithuania to the United Nations, delivering a statement in the United Nations Security Council meeting on the human rights situation in Ukraine.

    • Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania on the situation in eastern Ukraine Added2014.04.13

      We express strong support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.   

      We condemn actions of the separatists in the Donetsk region and other eastern regions of Ukraine – in Luhansk and Kharkiv. By means of such actions supported by the external forces and provocations it is sought to destabilise the situation in that region and the whole of Ukraine. We support the efforts of the Government of Ukraine to resolve the complicated and unpredictable situation in a peaceful way.
