EU paying special attention to Russia’s blockade in Sea of Azov, Lithuania says

Lithuania’s Foreign Vice-Minister Darius Skusevičius has assured Ukraine’s Deputy Foreign Minister for European Integration Olena Zerkal that Lithuania will continue to actively support Ukraine.

"Lithuania will continue to actively support Ukraine," Skusevičius said at the meeting with Zerkal on September 20, the Ukrainian Government portal reports.

He also confirmed the readiness of Vilnius to promote the priorities of Ukraine’s European integration and the continued attention to the EU’s Eastern Partnership initiative, in particular in the context of ensuring the cooperation of the interested member countries of the initiative towards integration into the energy and digital unions.

The parties praised the bilateral cooperation within European, transatlantic and international bodies and underscored the need to strengthen sanctions against the Russian Federation, especially in the context of the construction of the Kerch Strait Bridge.

"The European Union pays special attention to the aggravation of the situation in the Sea of Azov water area as a result of Russia's actions," Skusevičius noted.

In turn, Zerkal thanked the Lithuanian side for its firm political support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
