Grybauskaitė: Lithuania will not allow Russian troops to enter our territory

Lithuania should be ready for any action on the part of the Russian Federation and, if necessary, to defend their land.

This was stated by President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite, answering the question of the journalist of CNN about the goals of Vladimir Putin in the Baltic States.

«Everyone can make assumptions, and I guess I’m not supposed to talk about their assumptions publicly, but we are ready for anything. We know how unpredictable and dangerous is our neighbor, but we used to live in that environment,» said Grybauskaite.

She added that Lithuania invests in the country’s security, defence and international relations.

The Lithuanian President also stated that Lithuania would not repeat «past mistakes».

«We will never repeat the situation during the Second world war, when we did not defend himself and allowed the Russian troops onto our territory. It’ll never happen again,» assured Grybauskaite.

In summary, the President reiterated that predict the possible actions of Russia makes no sense, and that «we have to be ready for anything.»

We will note, today it became known that one of the Baltic countries, Estonia, agreed with France on the placement of additional groups of military and armored vehicles on its territory.
