He said this in an interview with Ukrinform.

According to the Minister of Defense , Lithuania from September will join the international training program for soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the UK.

“In April-May, we offered Ukraine two dozen courses that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could use to train specialists. Currently, five of them have already been activated, and the Ukrainian military is undergoing training with us. Until October inclusive, we will train about 150 specialists of various military professions. At the same time, some military specialties are of a very narrow profile,” Anusauskas said.

In addition, according to him, Lithuania plans to join the UK project, on the territory of which the Ukrainian military is trained by an international group of specialists.

“There will also be up to 15 Lithuanian instructors”, – noted the head of the Ministry of Defense.
