Lithuania is a nation state in northern Europe. It was formerly part of the USSR.


The Integrity Initiative leak revealed that the Lithuianian defence establishment has been working closely with the UK Deep state to "counter Russian disinformation".

Reintroduction of conscription

In 2008, Lithuania abandoned military conscription. In 2015, the Lithuanian State Defence Council (Dalia Grybauskaitė, Juozas Olekas, Jonas Vytautas Zukas and Loreta Grauziniene) called for its reintroduction. Lithuanian Defence Minister Juozas Olekas stated that the “changed geopolitical situation and insufficient manning of units of the Lithuanian Armed Forces leads to a temporary reintroduction of conscription.”[1]
