On May 6, the foreign ministers of the Baltic states Eva-Maria Liimets (Estonia), Edgars Rinkevics (Latvia), Gabrielius Landsbergis (Lithuania) arrived in Kyiv. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met with them, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“You are our closest and most reliable friends, because you were the first to support Ukraine from the very beginning of this war, from the very beginning of the threat from the Russian Federation. You supported us both with weapons and with your diplomatic actions. Your people, the population supported us in all aspects and in all directions,” Zelensky’s press service quoted him as saying.

The Baltic Foreign Ministers, in turn, noted the support for Ukraine’s European integration aspirations and offered assistance in the post-war restoration of social infrastructure facilities.

Special attention during the meeting was paid to the importance of strengthening sanctions pressure from the EU and the entire international community on the Russian Federation.

“It is extremely important not only to increase sanctions pressure, but also to maintain the integrity of the sanctions. They must be very effective. Do not give the aggressor the opportunity to avoid them and continue to finance the criminal war against Ukraine,” Zelensky stressed.
