International community should not turn a blind eye to the actions of aggressor states, including Russia, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite said at the General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly September 19, 2017. Politics 09:00, 20 September 2017 83 READ LATER 

“The world's attention is now focused on North Korea and Syria, but the same methods of blackmail, bullying and aggression are being used by Russia in Ukraine and along NATO's eastern border,” Grybauskaite said, according to the UN website.

She noted that despite Russia's special responsibility to protect international peace as permanent member of the Security Council, “it violated the UN Charter by attacking Georgia, illegally annexing Crimea, and directly participating in the war in Eastern Ukraine.” “The international community has to take its share of responsibility. We cannot let fear win by closing our eyes to violators, because it will only encourage them to go further,” Grybauskaite said.

It should be noted that ahead of the Lithuanian president’s address, Russian delegation has left the session hall expressing protest.
