Ukraine for 2015-2016 received from Lithuania 150 tons of military equipment, including machine guns. This was stated by the Minister of Defence of Lithuania Raimundas Karoblis in an interview to RBC Ukraine.

“Yes, Lithuania made the decision to send weapons that we don’t use of the Soviet type, but which is used in Ukraine. These is 150 tons of equipment, and also machine guns which aren’t necessary to us also,” noted Karoblis.

The minister emphasized that it was a rather symbolical gesture that, in particular, showed the solidarity of Lithuania with Ukraine. “Deliveries were in 2015-2016. It was the sovereign decision of the Lithuanian government. There was also full understanding of our actions by our partners in NATO. On the other hand, we hope that the same decisions will be made also by other NATO,” stated Karoblis.

As a reminder, in September, 2016, the Ministry of Defence of Lithuania transferred ammunition to Ukraine that the Lithuanian Armed Forces doesn’t use any more.
