Vilnius is not ruling out the option of sending instructors to Ukraine to train soldiers of the Defense Forces. Lithuania could take such a step if its Western partners joined it.

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė commented on this issue. She gave an interview to Bloomberg in Singapore on Friday, May 31.

"We train them [Ukrainian recruits] in third countries, we train them in Lithuania. Lithuania, if necessary, would probably train them in Ukraine in partnership with countries that would be ready to do so," the Baltic prime minister said.

Prior to the full-scale war unleashed by the Russian Federation, Lithuanian troops had been training in Ukraine. There is a long-standing cooperation between our countries, Šimonytė said.

Earlier, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nausėda noted that 18 countries have joined the Czech initiative to purchase shells for the Armed Forces, but only four of them are keeping their statements. Nausėda will raise this issue at the International Peace Summit in Switzerland.

It is expected that our defenders will receive the first batch of 155-millimeter shells purchased outside of Europe as part of the Czech initiative in the near future.
