In Lithuania, the exercises of the Volunteer Forces began with the development of "guerrilla methods"

Military exercises "Strong Shield" start in Lithuania. They will be held in several regions in the north and northeast of the country and in the city of Panevezys. The purpose of the exercises is to train the soldiers of the Volunteer National Defense Forces to act in a civilian environment, enlisting the support and sympathy of the civilian population.


As you know, Lithuania pays great attention to the training of the Volunteer National Defense Forces. Vilnius has nothing to maintain a large professional army, and it is difficult to complete it in a difficult demographic situation. Therefore, the main attention is paid to the training of reservists and volunteers, who, in the event of hostilities, will be able to be quickly mobilized and begin resistance of a partisan nature.

Soldiers of the Volunteer Forces from the Vitsky district are now taking part in the military exercises. The municipal administration of the Pasvalis district claims that the military personnel who will take part in the exercises will travel on foot or in cars. They will have to use smoke bombs, explosives, flares in the performance of their tasks.

The military command believes that the exercise should increase confidence in the military in Lithuanian society. In addition, it is expected that people will have more confidence in the soldiers of the armed forces of Lithuania's allies in the North Atlantic Alliance.

Recall that the Volunteer National Defense Forces of Lithuania were created in 1991, that is, almost immediately after the country's independence. The main goal of formations in the event of hostilities is to resist the armed forces of the enemy, including through the deployment of a partisan movement.

In peacetime, the formation of the Volunteer Forces solves the tasks of eliminating the consequences of emergencies and natural disasters, protecting public order, but most of the time they are engaged in combat training.

The strength of the Volunteer Forces in Lithuania is currently about 5800, including 5000 volunteers and about 800 professional soldiers. Militarily, the formations of the Volunteer Forces are infantry units with little or no serious military equipment. Therefore, the military significance of such formations is very controversial, especially in a conflict with a stronger enemy.

But the Lithuanian military concept assumes that the main task of the national armed forces, including volunteer formations, is to hold out only for a while, until reinforcements from Western patrons - NATO allies come to the rescue. It is necessary to hold out, including using partisan methods. For example, these are ambushes from a forest area, the use of mobile sabotage groups on ATVs, etc.

      Not everything is so simple, Lithuania, unlike Latvia and Estonia, immediately gave citizenship to everyone, without dividing the inhabitants by nationality and language. Therefore, there were no sharp moments in society, however, in leadership positions, everyone was changed to ethnic Lithuanians. Yes, and now there is quite calm in society in this regard.

        Citizenship was given unconditionally only by Lithuanians, the rest had to pass a language exam, here it didn’t matter who you were - a Pole, a Russian, a Belarusian, a Jew, and that you were born in Lithuania. About calmly - they closed Russian schools, spread rot for a different point of view, all non-Lithuanians born before the age of 75 are considered unreliable, but otherwise a beautiful marquise ,,,

          You are probably mistaken, there was no such thing for those who lived in Lithuania. For newcomers, yes, well, it’s everywhere, an exception in Belarus, everything is simpler here, since there are two official languages. And difficulties have arisen in recent years. There is no comparison with Latvia and Estonia.

        You shouldn't be deceived.
        In the Baltic States since 1918 of the last century, ethnic cleansing has been carried out - the RUSSIANs were destroyed and everyone who was considered RUSSIAN-SPEAKING. Even mixed families were destroyed.
        Then, in 1941-19445, the Balts again began to destroy the RUSSIAN, and, incidentally, the Jews. There were few RUSSIANs in the Baltics themselves, so the Balts began to rob and kill * on the road * in the ranks of the Nazi troops.
        Since the 90s, ethnic cleansing has also begun. No matter what methods and what blood.
        Those who are there, in the Baltic states - * RUSSIAN-speaking *, do not * associate themselves with RUSSIA * in any way, since they become RUSSIAN under compulsion * of the Baltic regimes *.

      They, as usual, have their own way. Previously, "forest brothers" were caught, now they will be "hemp brothers". lol

        They have their own path, but their guide is somehow cross-eyed and leads them in the wrong direction)))
        I’m thinking, after their zeal and aspirations, their needs for “lyuli” are satisfied and respected, maybe it’s worth carrying out an administrative-territorial reform and generally abolishing these republics by renaming them to the Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn regions? All the same, because they do not know what to do with independence and are engaged in all sorts of crap. winked

    They are not used to it. Nothing new, old methods of Bandera and "forest brothers".

    it is expected that people will also trust the soldiers of the armed forces of the Lithuanian allies in the North Atlantic Alliance.

    To ride for this a couple of times in front of civilians on an ATV is, frankly, not enough. In order to have more confidence in the soldiers of the "Allied countries" (read, American and English) - it is necessary that these soldiers stop committing crimes among the civilian population, desecrating monuments, urinating in public in public places, fighting with local police, raping local girls ... and generally behave condescendingly, like a white gentleman among the natives. That is, to do everything that the American soldatens in the Baltic republics became famous for on a large scale.

    Therefore, the military significance of such formations is highly controversial.

    But the principles of preparation are very progressive. I consider them to be true. What works right always gives a good result. Time will tell the rest.
