Zelensky, FMs of Baltic states discuss support for Ukraine amid Russian aggression
KYIV. May 6 (Interfax-Ukraine) – President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky discussed support for Ukraine amid the Russian aggression at a meeting in Kyiv with the foreign ministers of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
"You are our closest and most reliable friends, because you were the first to support Ukraine from the very beginning of this war, from the very beginning of the threat from Russia. You supported us both with weapons and with your diplomatic actions. Your people, the population supported us in all aspects and in all directions," Zelensky’s press service said, citing him.
The head of state also thanked the representatives of the countries, noting that Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are the best lawyers for Ukraine in the European Union and around the world.
For their part, Foreign Ministers of the Baltic States, Eva-Maria Liimets (Estonia), Edgars Rinkēvičs (Latvia), Gabrielius Landsbergis (Lithuania) noted support for Ukraine’s European integration aspirations and offered to provide assistance in the post-war restoration of social infrastructure.
Special attention during the meeting was paid to the importance of strengthening sanctions pressure from the EU and the entire international community on Russia.
"It is extremely important not only to increase sanctions pressure, but also to maintain the integrity of the sanctions. They must be very effective. Do not give the aggressor the opportunity to avoid them and continue to finance the criminal war against Ukraine," Zelensky said.
