“The world order which had been defined by the UN Charter and other international charters and conventions has been thrown into a trash bin,” Landsbergis added.
“Crimea is an intermediate station, as Russia is heading towards hegemony in Europe,” he said.
According to the politician, Russia’s aim is to distance Europe from the US influence. Besides, Landsbergis attracted attention to the fact that the present posture of affairs could have been predicted in the late 80ies already, when use of force followed economic sanctions.
