Lithuania MFA: The only way to end the war is by sending more weapons to Ukraine

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Gabrielius Landsbergis has said that the only way to end the Russian war against Ukraine is for Western allies to send more weapons to counter Russian attacks.

He said this in an interview with CNN on Monday, Ukrinform reports.

“The discussion in the West is still about the end of the war, and there are those who believe that maybe a frozen conflict would be suited better, which I completely disagree with that notion," Gabrielius Landsbergis said. "This thinking I think is the main obstacle for some countries to send the weapons that Ukrainians need.”

Asked whether the Germans should be doing more for Ukraine, Landsbergis agreed. And he also noted that many countries had procured German-made tanks.

"They are willing to send the tanks to Ukraine. So far, they have not got a greenlight from Berlin, and I truly truly hope that this might change – and that will reduce the pressure on Germany itself,” he added. 

As reported by Ukrinform, the United States and Germany stated they would send Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine.

On Monday, Defense Minister of the United Kingdom Ben Wallace announced the most significant military aid package for Ukraine to accelerate its success in the war with Russia. At the same time, he told British MPs about the need to reinvest in the military.
