Ukraine has received three million units of 7.62×51 mm ammunition, remote detonation systems, and winter equipment from Vilnius, the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry has announced.

Lithuania’s commitment to supporting Ukraine will remain steadfast, said Minister of National Defense Arvydas Anušauskas while commenting on the new aid package for Kyiv.

Earlier, Vilnius sent two launchers for NASAMS air defense systems to Ukraine to strengthen the country’s air defense in the face of the Russian missile terror.
