The President of the Lithuanian Olympic Committee gives away its Olympic medal in favor of the Ukrainians!

EOC Vice-President and IOC member Daina Gudzineviciute donated her Olympic gold medal from the Sydney 2000 Olympics to StrongTogether, a non-governmental organisation that helps the Ukrainians affected by the war.
