EU sanctions might prevent Russian Ukraine invasion - Lithuania

"We have to do everything to prevent the worst scenario, which we cannot exclude ... military intervention into the territory of Ukraine," Lithuanian president Gitanas Nauseda told reporters on entering a summit of EU leaders on Thursday (December 16).

"We have enough tools to stop Russia from its aggressive behaviour ... we have to talk about sectorial and also economic sanctions," he said.

He added NATO should update its contingency plans to prevent Russia using the territory of Belarus to prepare an attack on another country.
