Andrius Kubilius, Lithuanian MEP, Co-President of the EURONEST Parliamentary Assembly, made a video congratulating Ukraine on the 30th anniversary of its independence. He sent the following message through Promote Ukraine:
Dear friends, dear Ukraine!
I am very happy to congratulate all the Ukrainians on the 30th anniversary of Ukrainian independence. We in Lithuania are very close to the Ukrainian people since we are united by our common history and by our common destiny. Ukraine is a European country with very brave people who inspire us, a lot of friends of Ukraine, are very strongly in favour of Ukrainian membership in the EU and NATO. And that is what I would like to wish to all the Ukrainian people. Ukraine belongs to Europe, and Europe is very much dependent on Ukrainian success.
