The prime minister is also to meet with local people and to hand over aid, including foodstuffs and medical supplies, from the Lithuanian government and the Blue/Yellow organization to Ukrainian troops.

Skvernelis will then go to Kiev to meet with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and to open a security forum.
