On our part, we are ready to ensure full transparency of all processes," Hroisman said.

In turn, the speaker of the Seimas stressed that Vilnius was and will remain the advocate of Ukraine in the EU and NATO, first of all in the context of opposing the military aggression of Russia.

The parties also discussed the need for the development of bilateral relations, in particular, in the use of logistical capabilities of both countries.
