“Before our accession to NATO, we had stepped up regional cooperation and established battalions: Lithuanian-Polish, Lithuanian-Latvian-Estonian. I think Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia could follow the example of cooperation and demonstrate their ability to look beyond their national interests and their ability to agree among a few countries,” Landsbergis told the Žinių Radijas news radio on Friday.

He said he had discussed the idea with Ukraine’s foreign minister. Landsbergis said Lithuania could share its experience in this respect.

Landsbergis is scheduled to meet with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko on Friday.

Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia participate in the European Union’s Eastern Partnership program and say they are subjected to pressure from Russia.
