The head of the Gyvačių Sala training mission, Sigitas Maliauskas, confirmed the death of the Lithuanian.

Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anushauskas also confirmed that he had received information about the death of a Lithuanian in Ukraine.

“This information reached the Lithuanian embassy in Kyiv and us. According to preliminary information, he died near Bakhmut, but no other circumstances have been reported,” the minister said.

The Lithuanian volunteer served in the 92nd Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He served a little more than three months.
