Lithuania to hand over American M101 howitzers from World War II to Ukraine

Lithuania will send Ukraine an American M101 towed 105-mm howitzer from World War II. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of National Defense of the country.

Recently, Western countries have stopped deliveries of military aid to Ukraine. However, Lithuania decided to send the howitzers that the country has in stock. The local government stressed that the Ukrainian army needs an uninterrupted supply of weapons, otherwise it risks losing to Russian troops.

“Lithuania continues to financially support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Our 105-mm howitzers are heading for Ukraine,” the agency said in a statement.

How many howitzers the Armed Forces will receive is still unknown. Lithuania once received 72 units of such weapons from Denmark, 18 of them were used for spare parts. Now in the warehouses of the Lithuanian army there may be about 50 such howitzers.
