On February 10, 2020, Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte was in Kyiv and she confirmed that Lithuania would deliver Stinger FIM-92 air defense missile weapons to Ukraine. In recent weeks, many European and NATO countries have provided military aid to Ukraine with the delivery of anti-tank weapons and ammunition following the possible invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops.

In January 2021, the United States had authorized the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to send U.S.-made anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine.

The FIM-92 Stinger is a man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS) that can be shoulder-fired by a single operator. The Stinger missile is able to destroy low-level flying threats such as aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and cruise missiles.

The Stinger missile itself has an outward targeting range of up to 4,800 m (15,700 feet) and can engage low-altitude enemy threats at up to 3,800m (12,500 feet).
