Ukraine Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said Sunday that Ukraine had received 180 tons of ammunition from the United States for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Lithuania’s Ministry of Defense said the Baltic state had also sent defense aid to Ukraine over the weekend. Minister of Defense Arvydas Anušauskas said Sunday that the aid included “the Stinger anti-aircraft missile system.”
The Lithuanian Embassy in Kyiv published photos of the defense aid inside a C-17 aircraft, which showed that vehicles were also sent. The embassy said the aid also included protective vests.
Reznikov tweeted his thanks for that delivery, noting that it contained Stingers — a portable air-defense system that can be deployed by ground troops against aircraft.
He added that Ukrainian and Lithuanian relations were “very close (and) have lasted for many centuries.”
