Lithuania will deliver six Amber-1800 radars to Ukraine, German Defense Ministry announced on May 17.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius commended Lithuania's firm support for Ukraine in its struggle against Russian aggression. He noted that Lithuania is exceptional in how much military aid it provides to Ukraine, relative to the size of the Lithuanian economy.

“Lithuania achieves an unusually high level [of assistance to Ukraine],” said Pistorius.
