Ukraine and Georgia have both declared ambitions of joining NATO. Moldova has a non-aligned status, but in April, Moldovan President Nicolae Timofti said that he is in favor of his country joining the military alliance.
In an interview with the local Ziniu radio, Landsbergis said that prior to being admitted to NATO, the Baltic countries fostered regional cooperation and created joint battalions – one made up of Lithuania and Poland and another — of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
The European Parliament member reportedly has already discussed the idea of creating a three-country battalion with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, offering Lithuania’s support through an exchange of their past experience on such matters.
Moscow has repeatedly stressed that NATO's military expansion toward Russia's borders heightens tensions and undermines regional security.
