"The interlocutors discussed the situation in the east of Ukraine, which has developed as a result of Russia's aggression. According to Turchynov, Russian hybrid troops keep up conducting aggression in Donbas. The issues of countering cyber aggression, reforming the Ukrainian security and defense sector, the experience of the transition of the Lithuanian Armed Forces to NATO standards, cooperation in strategic communications and intensifying the activities of the joint Ukrainian-Lithuanian-Polish Brigade were also considered," the statement reads.
"Lithuania's help is extremely important and valuable to us," Turchynov said stressing that Lithuania has always been one of the most reliable friends of Ukraine.
