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, LRT wrote.

The value of the ammunitions stands at EUR 255,500, the Ministry of National Defence said.

It's not the first time Lithuania hands over ammunitions and weaponry to Ukraine. The first shipment was sent to Ukraine in 2014 when Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimean peninsula and Russia-supported separatists took control of eastern Ukraine.

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