“I think, sooner or later there will ultimately be a decision made on more substantial military support to Ukraine, on more serious weapons,” he told the Ziniu Radijas radio station on Thursday.
The minister mentioned, in particular, the weapons that would enable to fight off Russia’s military aviation.
“It is necessary to talk about possibilities for the Ukrainians to defend themselves and to supply not just lethal weapons used by the infantry but also the weapons that could enable to fight off the airstrikes of Russian aviation,” Anusauskas said.
“Those should not necessarily be flying weapons, those could be ground weapons. Some countries have such possibilities,” he added.
Last week, Russia unleashed a war in Ukraine sparking outrage and rage in the world. Western countries, including Lithuania, responded to the invasion with tough sanctions for Russia, and are providing comprehensive assistance, including military, to Ukraine.
