According to an own UNIAN correspondent, he said this to journalists in Luxemburg sitting of the Foreign Affairs Council of the EU.

“In spite of feeble hope, the situation is worsening. We see an       influx of not only armed people, but also heavy armament, such as tanks, via the border. An obligation to ensure the security of the border was torpedoed, and I am afraid that it will continue”, - said Linkevičius.

According to his persuasion, in the European Union “we should be united and stand firmly to support the Ukrainian government, Poroshenko’s peace plan, which is efficient”.

“It is way out of the crisis. Today we will have a good opportunity to discuss these issues with minister (Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo) Klimkin”, - stressed the Foreign Minister of Lithuania.
