Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite called for responding to Russia’s violations of international law in Syria and Ukraine, warning that failing to respond to Russia’s actions will put Europe’s security at risk.
In response to Russia’s Prime Minister Medvedev’s comments that the West and Russia “have fallen into a new Cold War,” President Grybauskaite told the Munich Security Conference on Saturday the situation was more serious.
“We are probably facing a hot war,” Grybauskaite said. “Russia is demonstrating open military aggression in Ukraine, open military aggression in Syria. There is nothing cold about this, it is very hot.”
“To blame Europe or the world that somebody else is imposing such a kind of unpredictable and very aggressive behavior, nobody will believe it, nobody will take it. It looks like we are talking like different civilizations still, we are not able to understand each other,” Grybauskaite added. (Source: Agencies)
