Details: Arvydas Anušauskas, Lithuania’s Minister of National Defence, emphasised that the country forms its support packages for Ukraine following the latter’s greatest needs and priorities.

Thus, in the near future, Lithuania will send the NASAMS launchers, and together with individual EU member states, they will order 155 mm calibre ammunition for Ukraine’s Armed Forces.

In addition, Anušauskas said the priority at the moment is equipment for mine clearance, which Lithuania and other countries could help purchase.
