The Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gabrielius Landsbergis, stated that the current year in the course of Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine is likely to be "particularly crucial" amid possible reductions in assistance volumes for Kyiv by Western countries.

During his visit to Kyiv today, the Lithuanian official expressed the opinion that the stagnation of support from partner countries and allies for the Ukrainian Armed Forces could determine the outcome on the theater of military operations.

"No expert recognizes, and we are talking in Lithuania, that the year 2024 may and will be particularly crucial for the course of the war in Ukraine," Landsbergis told Lithuanian journalists.

According to him, there are "scenarios, if assumptions are confirmed that Ukraine will receive enhanced support from the West, then its positions in the war will strengthen, but more complex scenarios are also predicted."

During his several-day visit, the head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will meet with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba and other officials, including the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov.

"This (meeting) will be about the possible scenarios for this year and what we can do to avoid some difficult scenarios for Ukraine," Landsbergis said.
