Lithuania announced the transfer of a new package of military aid to Ukraine.

It will include 155-mm shells and winter uniforms for the Armed Forces. 

This was announced on Facebook by the Minister of Defense of Lithuania, Arvydas Anushauskas. 

"Ammunition for the 155-mm artillery, which is desperately needed at the front, will be transferred. The Defense Resources Agency of the Ministry of Defense has signed contracts with manufacturers to restore these stocks. There will be more support, but we cannot announce everything," the Lithuanian Defense Minister emphasized. 

Arvydas Anusauskas added that his country will provide the Armed Forces with military winter uniforms and announced the signing of a contract with defense companies to supply the Armed Forces with ammunition in 2023.

1,500 Ukrainian military personnel will undergo training in Lithuania. 

"Lithuania will also contribute to the international fund for financing heavy armored vehicles, their production or modernization and acquisition. So, if anything, there will be tanks handed over to Ukrainians at our expense," Anusauskas wrote.
