Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė supports the expansion and strengthening of sanctions against Russia. She said this the day before the EU Summit, reports Delfi.

Grybauskaitė believes that a part of Donbas is being de facto incorporated into the Russian Federation.  She also condemned the introduction of Russian currency on the occupied Donbas territories.

“This is an actual occupation of the country. Undoubtedly, that’s the reason why the sanctions must be strengthened, expanded and easing the sanctions is out of question,” she stressed.
