During his visit to Lithuania, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy warned that Western allies’ hesitation to provide aid has bolstered Russia’s willpower to continue the war in Ukraine.

In discussions with Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda, Zelenskyy expressed confidence in deterring Russia, stating, “We have proven that Russia can be stopped, that deterrence is possible.” However, he cautioned against the Western partners’ uncertainty in aiding Ukraine, suggesting it only emboldens Russia. Zelenskyy also highlighted the potential risk to other regional countries, including Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Moldova, urging a united stand against Russian aggression.


Lithuania, demonstrating solidarity, pledged continued military support. President Nauseda acknowledged the war’s toll and expressed a commitment to Ukraine’s victory, announcing the upcoming delivery of M577 armored vehicles as part of a 200-million-euro military aid package.

Zelenskyy’s journey also included visits to Latvia and Estonia. Prime Minister Kaja Kallas reaffirmed the country’s backing for Ukraine in Estonia. Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna announced Tallinn’s readiness to allocate 0.25 percent of its GDP to military aid for Ukraine over the next four years, highlighting the cost-effectiveness of supporting Ukraine now compared to the potential consequences of Russian success.
