As of this week, while speaking within the Warsaw Security Forum, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius has said the ability to help Ukraine will become a «litmus test» for the European Union, Ukrinform reports.
«It is a litmus test for all of us. We support Ukraine, but it is not enough. People in Ukraine are exhausted by corruption, insufficient results of reforms, etc. However, Ukrainians should implement reforms, and we should help them,» Linkevičius said.
He reminded that Lithuania had initiated the Marshall Plan for Ukraine.
«We should create the mechanisms for Ukrainians to effectively use the European aid. Their victory will be our victory, their defeat will be our defeat, the defeat of our values,» Linkevičius stated.
