    • Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania on Crimea Added2015.02.26

      The Republic of Lithuania expresses strong support to Ukraine's sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

      Russian Federation's military aggression, launched a year ago in the Ukraine’s Autonomous Republic of Crimea and now continuing in eastern Ukraine, is a blatant violation of international law: the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act, 1994 Budapest Memorandum and other international agreements, as well as Russian and Ukrainian bilateral agreements. Such targeted military actions not only break bilateral and multilateral agreements on Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity assurance, but also pose a threat to the security and stability throughout Europe.

    • Lithuania's statement at the UN Security Council briefing by OSCE Chair Added2015.02.24

      Mr. President,

      I wish to welcome Minister Dacić to the Council in his capacity as the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office.

      Forty years ago the Helsinki Final Act spelt out fundamental principles governing relations from Vancuver to Vladivostok: non-use of force, non-infringement upon each other’s sovereignty, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of UN Charter and 40th anniversary of the Helsinki Final Act we have to recommit ourselves to the constitutional foundations of the UN and the OSCE.
