Lithuania has transferred L70 flak artillery guns to Ukraine as part of its latest military aid package, Lithuanian public broadcaster LRT reported on Feb. 10.

According to the report, the anti-aircraft guns were loaded onto cars in the Radviliškis region of Lithuania and sent to Ukraine. In addition to anti-aircraft guns, Ukraine will also receive ammunition and necessary spare parts.

For the past few weeks, Lithuanian military instructors have been teaching Ukrainian soldiers how to operate L70 guns.

L70 systems are designed to destroy aircraft, helicopters, and drones at a distance of up to five kilometers, in any weather conditions.

In early January, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda said his country wants to transfer L70 anti-aircraft guns and ammunition to Ukraine, as part of military assistance.
