The Lithuanian government will fund four Ukrainians from Ukraine's war-torn Donbass region to study in Lithuania, according to the Education Ministry.

Each year since 2014, 15 students from Luhansk and Donetsk regions enroll at the Vilniaus Lietuviu Namai (Vilnius Lithuanians' House) to complete secondary education. The Lithuanian government pays for the Ukrainian children's education and accommodation.

Under the approved programme, they can then apply for state-funded university studies after completing secondary education in Lithuania.
