Poland and Lithuania support Ukraine’s EU accession to ensure energy security

The Prime Ministers of the so-called Lublin Triangle, Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine are calling upon the international community to further increase pressure upon the Russian Federation, including through the further expansion of strong, consistent and long-lasting sanctions policy and by massive practical support to Ukraine.

In particular, they condemned the reckless and extremely dangerous attacks by Russian troops on nuclear power plants and nuclear facilities in Ukraine.

“Such attacks are unprecedented in world history and put the world at the brink of a nuclear catastrophe,” read the joint declaration.

Therefore, the three leaders are calling on the international organisations, in particular, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the UN to respond to Ukraine’s demands and ensure the safety of nuclear facilities in Ukraine.

They also emphasised that Ukraine belongs to the European family and should be offered the status of a candidate country now, especially in light of the EU’s independence from the energy resources imported from Russia as soon as possible.
