Lithuania has transferred 50 armoured personnel carriers (APCs) M113 to Ukraine, Lithuanian news agency Delfi quoted Minister of National Defence Arvydas Anušauskas as saying on Sept. 26.

According to the minister, the armoured vehicles arrived in Ukraine three days ago.

Anušauskas said Lithuania would continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine.

He noted that Vilnius was discussing all supplies of military equipment or other weapons with its NATO allies.

“Our army is a NATO army, its combat capability is also important for our allies,” Anušauskas said.

“As a result, every discussion, if it concerns the reduction of potential, supplies, has to be discussed with the allies, (about) how to compensate. There are many issues that cannot be resolved very quickly.”

Earlier on Sept. 16, Lithuania’s Ministry of Defense announced it would supply M113 APCs to Ukraine.
