NATO member Lithuania Defies Russian Nuclear Threats, Commits Troops to Ukraine Training Mission

In defiance of Russia's nuclear threats, Lithuania remains steadfast in its commitment to dispatch soldiers for a training mission in Ukraine, as stated by Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte in an interview with the Financial Times published on Wednesday.

Simonyte's remarks come in the wake of the Russian Defense Ministry's declaration of preparations for tactical nuclear weapons exercises, citing Western "threats and provocations." Addressing concerns over potential Russian reactions, Simonyte emphasised that succumbing to such fears would paralyse action, highlighting the recurring spectre of nuclear threats.

She reiterated Lithuania's resolve to support Ukraine with troops despite the risks.
