Respected Leader
Ja täällä tavannut myös Liettuassa asuvia venäläisiä ja mukavia ihmisiä myös he liettualaisten lisäksi. Ja hyvin ainakin omasta mielestäni ne vaikuttaa assimiloituneen liettualaiseen yhteiskuntaan. Erilaisissa palveluammateissa nähnyt useamman.

No, yhden henkilön kokemus on aina yhden henkilön kokemus.

Tässä puolentoista tunnin dokkari Ignalinan ydinvoimalan liepeille rakennetusta kaupungista jossa pääosa asukkaista oli/on venäjää puhuvia. Osa näyttää elävän eräänlaisessa aikaaiirtymässä ja tuossa tunnin kohdalla eräs henkilö totesi elävänsä venäläisessä informatiomaailmassa. Tosin lapset näyttävät oppivan liettuaa.

The first troops from the rotation mechanised US battalion arrived in Lithuania on Monday.

"We have sought for a larger long-term US military involvement in Lithuania and the region consistently and patiently," Lithuania's Minister of Defence Raimundas Karoblis is quoted in the ministry's press release.

The unit is part of the US Army Europe Operation Atlantic Resolve and will be deployed in Lithuania until spring 2020.

The 1st Armoured Battalion of the 9th Regiment, 1st Division, will bring 30 Abrams tanks, 25 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs), and 70 wheeled vehicles. They will be based at the training area in Pabradė.

The US forces will also help Lithuanian forces implement the mechanisation process following the purchase of Boxer IFVs.

The American troops will cooperate and train with the Lithuanian military and other allies, exchange experience while implementing mechanisation of the Lithuanian Land Force. Lithuania will ensure full Host Nation Support, including lodging and logistical support, and provide access Lithuanian military training areas.




US forces have been rotating to the Baltic states and Eastern Europe since spring 2014 as part of the Operation Atlantic Resolve following Russia's aggression in Ukraine.

Kokolihaa syövän heteromiehen tie vie Väiskin lihatiskille.

MTK:n teettämän kyselyn mukaan useamman kerran viikossa lihaa syöviä on suomalaisista lähes 70 prosenttia.

Kyselyssä ei miesten ja naisten välillä ollut merkittävää eroa siinä, kuinka usein lihaa syödään. Noin 75 prosenttia vastaajista piti lihan osuutta omassa ruokavaliossaan sopivana. Vahvimmin tätä mieltä olivat yli 45-vuotiaat. Vastaajista noin 75 prosenttia oli täysin tai melko samaa mieltä siitä, että Suomessa pitäisi tuottaa lihaa ainakin sen verran, että se riittäisi kotimaiseen kulutukseen.

Suurinta kannatus oli keskustan, kristillisdemokraattien, kokoomuksen ja perussuomalaisten kannattajissa. Vihreiden kannattajien näkemykset jakaantuivat asiassa. Heistä 49 prosenttia oli täysin tai melko samaa mieltä ja 22 prosenttia täysin tai melko eri mieltä. https://www.verkkouutiset.fi/suomalaisen-ruokapoytaan-kuuluu-liha/

Poland and Lithuania to plan joint Suwalki Gap defence

Lithuania and Poland will each assign a brigade to the NATO headquarters in Poland to "train and act together" for the defence of the Suwalki Gap.

The Suwalki Gap connecting Lithuania with Poland is just 80 kilometres wide, and is flanked by Russian exclave of Kaliningrad and Belarus. NATO has stressed that if the corridor was seized during an armed conflict, the Baltic states would be cut-off from the rest of the Alliance.

In Vilnius, the two countries on Wednesday signed an act of affiliation between Lithuania's Iron Wolf Mechanised Brigade and Poland's 15th Mechanised Brigade and have assigned them to the NATO's Multinational Division North East headquarters, with the task to "train and act together in order to protect the Suwalki Gap".

The brigades will remain under the command of their respective countries, but the NATO headquarters will be able to train with them in joint military exercises.

"We are going back to mechanisms and cooperation proven over centuries. We are heading toward something we had before the Battle of Grunwald [in 1410] or the Battle of Orsha [in 1514]," Lithuanian Defence Minister Raimundis Karoblis told reporters after the meeting with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Błaszczak on Wednesday.

The battles in the 15th and 16th centuries saw joint Lithuanian, Polish, and allied forces defeat the Teutonic Order and the Grand Duchy of Moscow, respectively.




The cooperation agreed on Wednesday will also step up interoperability with Poland, "one of the most reliable Lithuania’s allies in security and defence, as well as with other NATO allies," according to the Lithuanian Defence Ministry.

The Lithuanian–Polish defence council was endorsed on February 21, 2019 by the presidents of both countries, and it met for the first time in Vilnius on Wednesday.

The ministers also discussed the cooperation of the respective armed forces, possibilities to integrate national airspace and defence systems, and the need to retain a continuous US presence in the region.

"[The agreement] will allow us to organise more joint exercises, coordinate defence plans and cooperate even closer on defence and security," said Błaszczak.

"Joint exercises [and] operational plans are all things that ensure security," he added.

Suwalki Gap and Poland's F-35s

"Just as the Fulda Gap could be defended during the Cold War, the Suwalki Gap can and will be defended, too," said Lithuanian Army Colonel Darius Vaičikauskas, the chief of staff at the multinational division headquarters in Elblag, Poland,

The Fulda Gap was an area in West Germany that was seen by NATO as an obvious route for a Soviet tank attack during the Cold War.

"[The agreement] is a symbolic act between the two countries, and those unfriendly to us probably already know what that means and can mean to them," the colonel said.

Meanwhile, Lithuania's Chief of Defence Lieutenant General Valdemaras Rupšys welcomed Poland's decision to purchase advanced F-35 fighter jets, saying this will add to the security of the region as a whole.

"There are no borders between NATO countries. There is no border that could stop this plane," he said.

The Polish defence minister will sign a contract to purchase the F-35 fighter jets on Friday.


CORRECTION: The earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the affiliation agreement between Lithuania's Iron Wolf Brigade and Poland's 15th Mechanised Brigade will include establishing a separate unit.

-Virolla oli tuuria kun ei tuhlannut aikaa tilapäiselle asevelvollisuuden lopettamiselle eikä vuosikausiksi pitänyt puolustusbudjettia matalana.
-Tutustui Kaitseliiduun ja näki monta asiaa mistä ottaa oppia omille vapaehtoisvoimille (ei sanonut mitä).
-Kaitseliit ja Liettuan vapaehtoiset joukot ovat hyvin samankaltaiset.
-Virolla on yhteysupseereita Tallinnassa joka hoitaa yhteyksiä Tapan ulkomaisten joukkojen ja puolustusministeriön ja päämajan välillä. Liettuassa semmoista järjestelyä ei ole saksalaisten ja liettualaisten välillä.
