Freedom is a change-maker that can’t be taken for granted

On March 11, 32 years ago Lithuania was the first country to break free from the Soviet Union’s oppressive regime. Today we stand firm with Ukraine and support it by all possible means – politically, financially, and militarily – Lithuanians are ready to widely open doors of their homes to people forced out from Ukraine brutally invaded by Putin’s Russia. ‘Ukraine is fighting now for what the future world is going to look like’, said Prime Minister Ingida Šimonytė during her meeting with US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken in March 2022. In Lithuania, where we cherish freedom above all, an independent generation of politicians, scientists, and artists has grown up, who have contributed to the world’s progress by addressing global challenges in human health, science, and politics. Lithuania has given rise to a generation of true change-makers, who spark creativity and are determined for success and a change for the better.
