The ammunitions are suitable for Soviet-produced light rifleman guns, including automatic guns and machine guns. The decision to hand them over to Ukraine was made by the Lithuanian government in early February.

The worth of the ammunitions stands at 255,500 euros, the Ministry of National Defense said.

It's not the first time Lithuanian hands over ammunitions and certain types of weaponry and weaponry elements to Ukraine. The first such shipment was sent to Ukraine in 2014 when Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula and started supported pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

All in all, Lithuania has provided support to Ukraine worth several million euros since 2014.
