Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania agree on Russia's actions in the Ukrainian Donbas.

This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a joint briefing with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda and Lithuanian counterpart Gitanas Nauseda.

"We appreciate the immediate reaction of Warsaw and Vilnius to Russia's decision to recognize the independence of the so-called 'LPR' and 'DPR' and to allow the use of Russian troops outside Russia. We are united in our assessment of these crimes and these decisions by the Russian Federation. This is another act of aggression against Ukraine, our sovereignty, against our territorial integrity. This is the legitimization of the military presence of the Russian Federation in the temporarily occupied territories of Donbas, which had been hiding behind separatist chevrons for 8 years. This is a unilateral withdrawal of the Russian Federation from the Minsk agreements and an undermining of long-term, and not only Ukrainian, but international efforts for a peaceful settlement of the situation in Donbas," Zelenskyy said.
