No one in the civilized world trusts Russia anymore, and Lithuania increases its defense spending by 40%.

This was stated by President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite in an interview with 1+1 Channel, Censor.NET reports.

"The latest G-20 meeting showed that everyone has had enough lies, and no one believes a word out of the Kremlin leaders' mouths," she said.

The Lithuanian president is also confident that Russia will not try to conquer the Baltic countries.

"I think that Russia will not even try to go for the Baltic States because we are members of NATO. The decisions of the Wales summit clearly showed that the alliance is preparing to increase its defense capabilities in the Baltic States, Poland, where the patrols have already tripled. This is what NATO membership provides - security and collective defense. But we are not waiting for someone to protect us, we are increasing the defense budget by 40%, we created our own rapid reaction force, which has been working since Nov. 1," Grybauskaite said.
