VILNIUS – Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda is on Tuesday meeting with European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevicius to discuss the European Union's assistance for Ukraine and sanctions for Russia.

Ridas Jasiulionis, spokesman for the president, told BNS on the eve of the meeting that the two politicians would also discuss ways to fight disinformation and the falsification of history, as well as the implementation of EU strategic projects in Lithuania.

As Russia's invasion of Ukraine, started in late February, continues, the EU has been recently considering imposing new sanctions on Moscow, including a refusal to issue tourist visas to Russians.
