Military Review

Lithuanian Air Force Commander was suspended for plans to repair helicopters in the Russian Federation. What did the court decide?

43
Reports are coming from Lithuania that the court considered it unlawful to dismiss the country's Air Force commander Audronius Navitskas and his subsequent discharge to the reserve. Recall that the scandal in the Lithuanian military department occurred due to the fact that Colonel Navickas ignored the directive banning the Defense Resources Service for repairs aviation Air Force technicians in Russian factories. This is an agreement on the basis of which the Lithuanian Air Force Mi-8 helicopters were to be repaired in Russia.


The Lithuanian Defense Ministry stated at the time that the commander of the Air Force had exceeded authority, and the deal “had to be canceled at the last stage”. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Lithuania did not hide the fact that they also acted on the instructions of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in which the phrase “repair of helicopters in Russia” was perceived at the level of “high treason”.

During the trial, Colonel Navickas stated that the charges of violating the allegedly existing ban on the repair of Mi-8 helicopters in the Russian Federation were only a reason for his removal from office. The court, as reported by the portal BaltNews, agreed with the arguments of the ex-commander of the Air Force of Lithuania.

Thus, if the court decision is executed, Navickas will be reinstated.

Lithuanian Air Force Commander was suspended for plans to repair helicopters in the Russian Federation. What did the court decide?


Against this background, the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, which clearly remained dissatisfied with the judicial decision, said that after a year or so in Lithuania "there would be no Soviet / Russian helicopter left at all." Apparently, this should be perceived as the inviolability of the “NATO unity.”

By the way, as previously reported by the Military Review, NATO is demanding that Lithuania increase the number of Lithuanian military personnel in foreign missions of the military bloc. Lithuania agrees to bring its NATO international contingent, which will participate in the new military adventures of the alliance, before the 500 military personnel.

      There is no one to clean the potatoes in the kitchen and galley, so they ask to increase the contingent to as many as 500 soldiers.

        There is a resource in military aviation and there are documents defining its necessary balance. It is the COMMITTER'S RESPONSIBILITY. Write him a NEW document, take RESPONSIBILITY for the sky-ready equipment - and it’s the end. The trouble is that politicians quickly molt into the bushes when you ask them to WRITE something.

          Namesake, I always read you with pleasure, but as I look, you’re not talking about that now-"that in a year with a little in Lithuania," there will be no Soviet / Russian helicopter left at all. "Damn, what are you all about, guys? Okay, figuratively, I’ll tell you now, I, as Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, took the money to repair the Ship, which they will write off tomorrow ....... I am not a corruption official after that? wink

        What are you writing here? And where should Mi be restored and repaired - on a Boeing? If they currently have no other helicopters in service? That's when there will be Apaches - they will be repaired in the USA! And political Wishlist do not always coincide with reality - at the moment, the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force of any country is responsible for combat readiness - which means helicopters must fly, it is time to repair them - they must be repaired ... And if helicopters do not fly, this is an undermining of combat readiness and an article in to any country in the world, it’s much harder than the corruption that you somehow saw here and then stitched for some reason a stool ... An ordinary provocative throw in the style of "ala-Navalny!", that's what your comment is called!

            You are confusing God's gift with scrambled eggs! If the helicopter is not written off and the time has come to repair it - it needs to be repaired! There are no other options ... Tomorrow there will be no cars, but you probably have your car, if you drag it to a car service ... laughing

            And what kind of helicopters will be tomorrow? Share information? If the equipment needs repair, then it is needed, and your speculation is devoid of logic.

    The colonel in fact paid for the fact that he cried out for the combat effectiveness of the helicopter fleet of the Lithuanian Armed Forces. But here you need to choose - either a Russophobe with honor and promotion, or an enemy of the homeland who cares for the aircraft fleet (it gives Russia the opportunity to make money on the repair of several helicopters). In a word, Lithuania.

      Gene, hello! hi The Colonel was in the wrong direction. Now, if he praised American turntables, while diligently pouring mud on the Mi-8 and demanding immediate purchases of helicopters from the United States, he would not only save the seat, but he would also receive a brilliant tsatsku from the State Department and his Foreign Ministry.

            The EU said that since 2020, financial assistance to the Baltic states has ceased. Following this, it was announced from the United States that the Americans are curtailing a number of joint programs with the Baltic states. The retarded are left face to face with the Russian Federation, for which they still continue to push, but which since 2025 has completely ceased its transit through these countries. So figure out how it might end.

      this emphasizes the idiocy of the situation itself. I don’t know who this Novitskas is (I hope not a rabid Nazi), but in this case, as a professional, I feel sorry for him. He acted honestly and in accordance with the situation. soldier

    they also acted on the instructions of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in which the phrase “helicopter repair in Russia” itself was perceived at the level of “high treason”


    Taking care of the necessary, documented remainder of the resource is the performance of official duties. Treason is to leave the army without helicopters.

      In Lithuania, flying clubs were massively developed in which good gliders and pilots were trained. At the championship of the USSR, they won medals. Even in small towns there were teams. We (in the provinces) had to dream of such a level.

    Chukhontsy, handsome! We are glad that soon there will be no Russian copies of military equipment in the troops, but in Russian gas pipes. But all samples of foreign equipment, as a rule, are much more expensive than ours, and liquefied gas also comes out more expensive. For their POWERFUL economy, just pull all these costs!

    After a year, they will not have a single helicopter at all. Without repairs and spare parts, helicopters do not fly for a long time. So there is an obvious corruption component)))) Instead of maintaining the flight condition of existing helicopters, take a loan, buy even older helicopters from other countries, then retrain pilots, technicians, engineers for a long time and persistently, but sign an obligation not to shove hands except for the current operation.

    I think the bottom line is that a citizen of Lithuania, Yuri Borisov, a former owner of a helicopter ARZ in Kaunas, who “promoted” Paksas, who was withdrawn in connection with impeachment, the formal reason for which was the granting of citizenship to the aforementioned Yuri Borisov, is engaged in helicopter repair.

    He did it strangely, strange, it is as if our commander would decide to send the equipment for repair to Ukraine now (it is clear that the comparison is not entirely correct). Still interesting is the judge’s decision (maybe it’s independent, maybe it will be canceled), how will it be implemented now?

    Actually, there is a standard for conducting scheduled maintenance and repair work on aircraft. And if you do not intend to continue to operate this equipment, take it out of operation by an appropriate order in Moscow oblast. If not, then in case of a helicopter accident this official will be the last. So you are wrong about corruption. There are regulations and they must be followed.
