Ukraine's Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal arrived in Lithuania on April 5 and met his Lithuanian counterpart, Ingrida Simonyte.

The trip to Lithuania follows Shmyhal's visits to the two other Baltic countries, Estonia and Latvia, earlier this week.

Shmyhal said that the agenda of his talks with Simonyte includes "military-technical cooperation, support for Ukraine's European integration, confiscation of Russian assets, and increased restrictions on Russian goods and services."

Vilnius has been one of Kyiv's staunchest supporters against Russian aggression. According to the Kiel Institute of the World Economy, Lithuania's defense contributions to Ukraine are one of the highest in the world in terms of gross domestic product (GDP) shares.

Earlier this year, Lithuania pledged a long-term 200 million euro (roughly $215 million) support package to Ukraine and promised to continue supporting the country.
