In his words, the aid will be sent in two shipments, with one taken by car and the second one flown to Ukraine together with Ukrainian troops who underwent rehabilitation in Lithuania.

According to Ohman, around EUR 5,000 were collected during auction in Vilnius last Friday. The money was spent on the purchase of range finders, binoculars, tablets, rifle scopes and military uniforms.

Artwork of Lithuania, Ukrainian, Swedish and German artists were presented during the action.

Blue-Yellow say they have sent aid worth EUR 100,000 to Ukraine.
