Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda said he did not discuss with his counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky the recent meeting of influential Ukrainians in Vilnius.

"We actively communicate and I think we will have a chance to talk about what took place in Lithuania and openly look into certain circumstances," Nauėda said after a virtual meeting with Zelensky and Polish President Andrzej Duda on Thursday.

Based on Ukrainian media reports, oligarch RInat Akhmetov and a group of influential politicians and media figures visited Vilnius last week.
