Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas emphasized Lithuania’s responsiveness to Ukraine’s needs: “We hear the urgent requests of Ukraine and continue our support according to the expressed needs. We actively encourage our allies to do the same,” showcasing Lithuania’s role as a proactive supporter and an advocate for international solidarity with Ukraine.
