Lithuania joins calls to establish a no-fly zone in Ukraine
The Lithuanian Parliament has adopted a resolution calling for the establishment of a no-fly zone over Ukraine, joining Estonia and Slovenia on appeal.
The resolution said a no-fly zone would allow United Nations peacekeepers to guarantee the security of humanitarian corridors, the security of Ukraine's nuclear power plants and nuclear waste disposal facilities.
Although Lithuania, Estonia and Slovenia are all members of NATO, the military alliance has categorically ruled out any role in establishing and controlling a no-fly zone over Ukraine to protect itself from Russian air strikes.
"On Wednesday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the situation could only get worse if NATO took action and turned it into a full-blown war between NATO and Russia."
