RUSSIA ‘PRACTICALLY IN A WAR STATE’ WITH EU, SAYS LITHUANIAN LEADER

Washington Times on August 30, 2014, reported that Ukrainian troops evacuated from the rebel-held town of Starobesheve, eastern Ukraine…Ukrainian government forces have succumbed to a sequence of military failures. Excerpts below:

Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite claimed Russia is practically at war with Europe ahead of a meeting with European Union leaders which will likely result in more sanctions on Russia.

“It is the fact that Russia is in a war state against Ukraine. That means it is in a state of war against a country which would like to be closely integrated with the EU. Practically Russia is in a state of war against Europe,” Ms. Grybauskaite said according to The Daily Mail.

“That means we need to help Ukraine to … defend its territory and its people and to help militarily, especially with the military materials to help Ukraine to defend itself because today Ukraine is fighting a war on behalf of all Europe,” she added.
