"We will look at it from all angles," Laurynas Kasciunas, the CNSD chairman, told BNS on the eve of the meeting.

In his words, the goal is to discuss how people with such businesses, including politicians, should behave: "We should look at how, for example, politicians who have businesses should behave in such situations and so on, and what impact this has on the resilience of our political system".

The CNSD will also consider an initiative of Raimundas Lopata, chairman of the parliamentary Committee for the Future, to legally ban all business relations with countries Lithuania considers to be terrorist states.

Lopata reminded that when Russia attacked Ukraine, the Seimas of Lithuania unanimously stated that Russia was "a state that supports and commits terrorism".

Arunas Laurinaitis, chairman of the Lithuania-Russia Business Council, says more than 300 Lithuanian-capital companies were operating in Ukraine in February when Russia started the war in Ukraine.
