The money will be spent on prosthetic limbs for the Ukrainian military, Lithuanian MEP Petras Auštrevičius, one of the organizers of the auction, said on Monday.

"We will make sure the assistance reaches those Ukrainian soldiers who need it most. We will consult Ukrainian doctors, representatives of casualties to help soldiers get back to normal life as soon as possible," the MEP said.
