Lithuania's aid to Ukraine

Lithuania has been one of the most active allies of Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion. It provides military assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and also supports Ukraine's membership in the European Union and NATO.

In January, Lithuania approved a package of long-term aid to Ukraine for 200 million euros. This was stated by President Gitanas Nauseda during his visit to Kyiv.

Also, the Prime Minister of Lithuania, Ingrid Šimonite, recently called on the European Union to increase aid to Ukraine in order to win over Russia.
