Lithuania will provide further security assistance to Ukraine worth EUR 24 million ($26.87 million) later this month, Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas said in a Facebook post on July 19.

"Military support from Lithuania to Ukraine will be provided in July for 24 million euros," the statement said.

The minister also proposed to create a broader "coalition of wisdom" to help Kyiv reform and modernize its education system. Anušauskas noted that such a six-state “mini-coalition” is already functioning in Lithuania, while “so much more is needed.”
