Lithuanian foreign minister warns against fallout from Ukraine

Landsbergis endorsed the words of French President Emmanuel Macron regarding the deployment of Western troops in Ukraine. – Now it's time for discussion. Opening a dialogue will break down self-imposed red lines, the diplomat stressed in an interview for Ouest-France. The minister also believes that 2024 will be decisive for the outcome of the war in Ukraine.

– Although the Ukrainians showed incredible courage, the situation did not improve. But the decisiveness of the war depended on the Western capitals. Depends on the amount of combat equipment. Ukrainians have seven times less ammunition than Russians. It's a miracle they can resist. Expect catastrophic things this year, Landsbergis said.

The head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry highly praised the Czech initiative to purchase 800,000 missiles for Ukraine.

– Why does it fall on the Czech Republic or smaller countries in the east when there are big allies who can find a solution, the only question left is imagination. I am glad that the Czech Republic went ahead and found this solution. I am sure we will be able to collect all the necessary money, stressed the politician.
