Lithuania is preparing a new military aid package with anti-drones and other weapons for Ukraine, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda tweeted on March 22.

“Support to Ukraine is crucial,” he said.

“In upcoming months, Lithuania will send anti-drones, weapons, ammunition, provide military training and will continue inviting the allies to boost up their efforts too.”

Lithuania’s support to Ukraine now accounts for over 1.2% of its GDP, he said.

Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas announced on March 6 that his country was preparing a new military aid package for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, adding that Lithuania plans to train 1,600 Ukrainian troops throughout 2023.
