Lithuania proposes to terminate agreements with Russia and Belarus

Feb 20, 2024

The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has proposed to the government to terminate the existing agreements on trade and economic cooperation signed with Russia and Belarus two decades ago.

This was reported by LRT.

The Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has already prepared and published the relevant draft resolutions.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is convinced that the agreements should be denounced due to the military aggression of Russia and Belarus against Ukraine and the fact that cooperation with these countries is now completely suspended and impossible.

The Ministry does not expect any negative consequences from Lithuania's unilateral termination of the agreements.

The agreement with Belarus was signed in December 1994, and with Russia in November 1993. Bilateral commissions were also established, which have not been met since 2011 in the case of Russia and since 2015 in the case of Belarus.
