Between 1569 and 1795 Poland and Lithuania formed the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth which incorporated much of what is now Ukraine. Before 1918 both countries were part of the Russian empire and until 1991 part of the USSR.
A number of agreements were signed in November 2009 including the mutual recognition of university qualifications and cooperation in preserving cultural heritage; furthermore Lithuania promised assistance to Ukraine with obtaining EU-membership.
In 2014, the Lithuanian president Dalia Grybauskaitė voiced her support for Ukraine in the wake of the Ukrainian crisis. In January 2015, Lithuania requested a United Nations Security Council meeting due to the ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine. Later on, Vytautas Landsbergis declared that he believes the Minsk agreement to be "worse than Munich".
