Nausėda: Lithuania to contribute to de-occupation of Ukrainian territories

Ukrinform
Vilnius will never recognize Russia’s occupation of part of Ukraine’s territory and will make efforts to de-occupy these territories.

President of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda made a corresponding statement during a festive speech at the Polish Sejm on the occasion of the 230th anniversary of the adoption of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth’s Constitution, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The mobilization of Russian armed forces on the border with Ukraine and the military actions in eastern Ukraine carried out by Moscow-backed illegal groups testify to the pressure and incitement of military tension as a driver of political influence. I want to emphasize that Lithuania will never recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea and will act towards ending the actual occupation of the eastern part of Ukraine,” Nausėda said to the applause of Polish and Lithuanian MPs.

As reported, the presidential summit of the heads of state of Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia takes place in Warsaw on Monday as part of the celebration of the 230th anniversary of the adoption of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth’s Constitution. In addition, bilateral talks between the presidents of Ukraine and Poland will be held.

The first Constitution of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth was adopted by the Great Sejm on May 3, 1791. The Constitution is considered one of the oldest in Europe. However, an attempt to implement the provisions of this document failed due to resistance from local magnates and the occupation of the Polish kingdom by Russian troops in 1792.
