The troops will undergo rehabilitation at the Military Rehabilitation Centre in the southern resort town of Druskininkai, Viktorija Cieminytė, spokeswoman for the national defence minister, told BNS on Thursday.

In her words, the incoming Ukrainian troops replaced three outgoing troops who had finished treatment in Lithuania. All in all, 24 Ukrainian troops have come to Lithuania for full rehabilitation this year and the country plans to accept 50 in total.
