ZAGREB, April 15 (Hina) – Lithuanian police have donated 35,000 pairs of protective gloves, worth €5,000, to their Croatian colleagues, the Croatian interior ministry said on Tuesday.
The donated gloves will be used by police officers who work on the ground, implementing measures aimed at curbing the spreading of the coronavirus.
Police Director Nikola Milina sent a letter of thanks to Vilnius, describing the donation as a token of a firm partnership between the two countries’ police forces.
“Despite ensuring that police officers are provided with protective equipment on a continuous basis, this donation of protective gloves is certainly welcome and will contribute to safer working conditions and the protection of our police officers in the field, who diligently and professionally do their jobs every day, even in these difficult working conditions. Therefore, I thank my Lithuanian colleagues for this worthy donation. It is also a testament to a strong international partnership, which, especially in crisis situations, is of particular importance and which we will continue to nurture,” Police Director Nikola Milina stated in his letter.
