The department expressed gratitude to Norway for the transfer of part of the additional equipment.

NASAMS for Ukraine from Lithuania

The Ministry of Defense of Lithuania announced the transfer of NASAMS anti-aircraft missile system launchers to Ukraine in early October.

The department emphasized that in addition to such installations, Ukraine would also receive 155mm caliber ammunition, which Lithuania ordered for the Armed Forces of Ukraine jointly with other EU countries.

Just 3 days ago, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that our country had received additional NASAMS. According to the head of state, they have already been put on combat duty.
