Arvydas Anušauskas said in a tweet on Sunday that "six trucks with 114 transformers were sent from Lithuania to Ukraine" in recent days.

"In total, Lithuania intends to provide 252 transformers," he declared.

Anušauskas announced that Lithuanian energy companies "have already sent EUR 3 million worth of support for the reconstruction of Ukraine's energy sector" and were now sending a further EUR 2 million worth of support.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has warned that Russia is planning more attacks on his country this week, appealing to defence forces and citizens to be prepared to endure a new wave of air strikes on energy infrastructure amid freezing temperatures.

Zelensky last week urged the United Nations Security Council to act against Russia over air strikes on civilian infrastructure that have led to massive power cuts and deprived residents of heat and water in cities across Ukraine, news agencies have reported.

Monday is day 278 of Russia'war on Ukraine.
