“The lessons learned in Ukraine help us develop our military capabilities in a purposive manner. We also strongly stand by the position to support Ukraine in every way we can as the next assistance package is already in the making,” said the Minister of Defense of Lithuania.

According to Arvydas Anušauskas, Lithuania is intensively preparing for the NATO summit, which will be held on July 11-12 in Vilnius. There, among other important issues, they will seek agreement on the prospect of Ukraine’s membership in the Alliance.

Until now, Lithuania has already provided military support to Ukraine for almost 409 million euros. A significant part of Lithuania’s support to Ukraine consists of assistance in military training.

“Approximately 1600 Ukrainian soldiers are planned to undergo the training this year. Lithuanian military instructors are providing the assistance both, at national level and via international efforts – the EU Military Assistance Mission in support of Ukraine (EUMAM Ukraine) and Operation Interflex,” added the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania.
