Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has issued a stark warning about the potential consequences if Russia were to attack the Baltic NATO countries, predicting that while Russia might be defeated, the aftermath would leave cities in a state of devastation akin to that witnessed in Bakhmut and Avdiivka.

Speaking to the Lithuanian news agency Elta, as reported by European Pravda, Kuleba expressed his firm belief that the Baltic states would valiantly defend themselves against "an enemy that is superior in both experience and capabilities."

However, he cautioned that NATO might take several days to formulate a response to such aggression.

"In the end, I think NATO would prevail. However, look at Bakhmut, look at Avdiivka – this is what the Baltic states will look like after intense fighting. This is what your cities will look like. Vilnius will no longer be beautiful," Kuleba stated, highlighting the severe impact of war on urban landscapes.

To avert such a catastrophic scenario, Kuleba emphasized that the most effective and safest strategy is to bolster support for Ukrainians currently engaged in combat against Russian aggression. He commended Lithuania for its understanding of this dire situation and its continued support for Ukraine.

"Others pretend they can avoid it," the Ukrainian foreign minister remarked, alluding to the reluctance of some to acknowledge the gravity of the threat posed by Russia.
