Linas Linkevicius, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania, tells Ukraine Today of the efforts of the international community to counter terrorism in the wake of Paris attacks, also discussing Donbas crisis deterioration.

“How many people should be killed to say 'Je suis Ukrainiens'? All these tragedies they cannot be solved at the expense of each other. These events in Paris now have big resonance, a lot of discussions. It doesn't mean we should put aside what is happening in Ukraine," said Linkevicius, Ukraine Today reports.

“I am also questioning the possibility to have coalition with those, who are not partners in the region, not partners in the crisis,” the top Lithuanian diplomat said. “You cannot make coalitions with terrorists, when fighting with terrorists. It's not logical. We are not very happy with coalition of Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and Assad regime in Syria, which is de facto emerging."
