"The president will join all initiatives aimed at highlighting the closeness and the sense of community between the people of Lithuania and Belarus," Antanas Bubnelis, presidential spokesman, told BNS on Friday.

Lithuanian journalist, TV host and public figure Andrius Tapinas is organizing the human chain formation in support of the people of Belarus. He earlier told BNS some 25,000-30,000 people would be needed to form a human chain stretching for more than 30 km.

Ex-Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite is also expected to join the human chain.
