The Lithuanian government will provide 200,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines to the Eastern Partnership countries, including 100,000 doses to Ukraine.

This was announced by Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, European Truth reports.

"The Lithuanian government has just confirmed 200,000 vaccines for the Eastern Partnership countries. Starting with Ukraine - 100,000 vaccines, Georgia - 15,000 and Moldova - 11,000. A small step away from Lithuania, I hope our partners in Europe will join in solidarity with many others." , - wrote Landsbergis on Twitter on Friday.

Landsbergis did not specify the name of the manufacturer of the vaccine, as well as the timing of when the doses will be provided.

In late February, Landsbergis said Lithuania was ready to share surplus coronavirus vaccine with Ukraine when the opportunity arose.

In early February, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olga Stefanishina said that several EU countries had agreed to resell surplus coronavirus vaccine to Ukraine.
