    “Russia must be stopped, and Russia can be stopped”

    In Vilnius, the Polish-Lithuanian intergovernmental consultations take place today. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė chair the consultations. The main topics between Polish and Lithuanian Prime Ministers were security, energy and the situation in Ukraine. “We, Poland and Lithuania, work side by side in Brussels, Washington and Kyiv, helping our Ukrainian friends to make this new security architecture, the foundation for the future prosperity of our two nations,” Morawiecki stated.


    “Poland and Lithuania lived in the shadow of Russia for a long time. We have often warned our partners against concessions related to the aggressive Russian policy. Unfortunately, only the events of recent months have brought the whole of Europe to agree with us,” Morawiecki said in Vilnius. 

    “Russia must be stopped and Russia can be stopped. Ukraine does it on the battlefield, but the Lithuanian and the Polish governments also do it, explaining to Western Europe what our policy should look like to never be subject of Russian blackmail again,” he referred to the situation in Ukraine. 

    “A crisis related to the sanctions that Poland and Lithuania have fought from the beginning is advancing in Russia. Today we are dealing with a war of nerves: who will give up first? Poland and Lithuania will guard that Europe does not give up in this fight,” he added.


    “In many bilateral areas, from culture to education, infrastructure, and foreign policy, we are practically on the same wavelength. Thank you, Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė and President Gitanas Nausėda,” Prime Minister commented after Polish-Lithuanian intergovernmental consultations.
