The peace plan agreed to by France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia in Minsk on Wednesday to stop the fighting in eastern Ukraine is a ‘weak solution’, according to Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.

Speaking to journalists upon arriving at the European Council meeting on Thursday, Grybauskaite said that “The control of the borders was not agreed or solved. That means that the border is open for any military equipment entrance.”
