      On 6 March, Lithuania’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, met with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, on the margins of the Congress of the European People’s Party (EPP) in Bucharest. The politicians discussed the security situation of the eastern flank, defence cooperation, support for Ukraine, and the fight against disinformation.

      “An indecisive response only encourages Russia. The Kremlin will continue to export instability and cause more conflicts if unstopped. This war must be won and won decisively. It is not only a European war. It challenges the international order, which, although imperfect, seeks to ensure that our borders and sovereignty are defined by law, not by military power,” said the head of Lithuania’s diplomacy.

      Landsbergis also stressed the need to ensure long-term defence support for Ukraine.
