He said that tomorrow he will travel to the demarcation line with Crimea to show that Lithuania does not and never will recognize the aggressive activities by Russia. Pranckietis recalled that his country was very grateful to the U.S. for not recognizing Lithuania occupation by the USSR. So he said Lithuania was willing to do the same for Ukraine.
