President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a bilateral meeting with President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nausėda, who is visiting Kyiv.
The head of the Ukrainian state said that the visit of the Lithuanian colleague on the Constitution Day of Ukraine is another confirmation of significant and timely support from Lithuania.
Zelenskyy thanked Nausėda for defense assistance to Ukraine, which reached about 1.5% of Lithuania's GDP.
Separately, he noted today's decision to buy two NASAMS launchers by the Republic of Lithuania to transfer them to Ukraine.
"Thank you for the decisive step to strengthen our defense capability and defend Ukrainian skies and citizens from enemy attacks," the Head of the Ukrainian State said.
The leaders agreed on positions on the eve of the NATO summit in Vilnius. In this context, the President of Ukraine expressed his gratitude to the President of Lithuania for the effective support of our country's movement toward membership in the Alliance.
Zelenskyy also briefed his colleague on the situation at the front and the current needs of the Ukrainian troops to continue the defense and de-occupation of Ukrainian territories.
