According to the president, the current situation was the violation of the sovereign country's territorial integrity. Grybauskaite highlighted that the international communities has to react to this.

"I think that the international community has to react to any violations of the sovereign country's territorial integrity. This has to be done by all because it is not tolerable. This is against Russia's international commitments, Russia-Ukraine agreements and the UN Convention," said Grybauskaite on Friday, Feb. 28.

According to Grybauskaite, the actions of Russia allowed thinking about Vladimir Putin's plans to annex Crimea to Russia's territory.

"These signs are extremely worrying. They show a certain preparation and assumptions related to the occupation of the [Ukraine] territory. This is damnable and shows certain desperation and the violation of a sovereign country's territory," said Grybauskaite.
