The Lithuanian Ministry of Defense has transferred a new batch of military aid to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Ministry of Defense of Lithuania announced this on its official website.

This primarily regards the transfer of counter-drone systems, generators, and folding beds.

The aid has already been delivered to the Armed Forces of Ukraine: it was transferred directly to the military.

“Lithuania is constantly supporting Ukraine. We are helping Ukraine in all ways possible and are looking for ways to increase this assistance. The weapons and equipment provided by us and our allies make an important contribution to Ukraine’s fight for freedom,” Laurynas Kasčiūnas, Lithuania’s Minister of Defense, said.

Since the beginning of 2024, Lithuania has transferred 155 mm artillery ammunition and M577 Command Post Vehicles to Ukraine on its own initiative.

Command Post Vehicles are designed to provide radio communications, command, and control of the Ukrainian Ground Forces.

The country also donated tens of thousands of warm clothing sets, thousands of rounds of Carl Gustaf recoilless rifles ammunition, and remote detonation systems.

Militarnyi previously reported that Lithuania joined the Czech initiative to purchase artillery ammunition for Ukraine and has allocated a corresponding financial package to support this effort.

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonite stated that the government had allocated €35 million within a Czech initiative to purchase artillery ammunition.

Lithuania has thus become one of more than 15 countries to join this initiative, which will speed up the procurement and delivery of the shells to Ukraine.

Due to Lithuania’s participation, the full amount needed for the purchase of more than a million artillery shells, which Ukraine is to receive in April, has been raised.
