Military Review

Grybauskaite announced that Lithuania will not switch to NATO financial standards in 2020, but in 2018.

Lithuania has once again been scolded for the fact that its military budget, in percentage terms, is one of the poorest among all the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. If you believe the official statistics, Vilnius spends about 1,1% of GDP on the defense industry, and the “standard” of NATO - 2% of GDP. It turns out that Lithuania is being called on to increase military spending almost doubled in order to meet the “standards”.


Grybauskaite announced that Lithuania will not switch to NATO financial standards in 2020, but in 2018.


Under the visor again had to take the President of Lithuania Dale Grybauskaite. She announced that Lithuania would do its utmost to increase state expenditures for the country's military needs to 2% of GDP by 2018. Earlier, the same Grybauskaite declared that Lithuania could achieve a two-percent “standard” of NATO in Lithuania not earlier than 2020 of the year. Now, as you can see, the plans are shifted by a couple of years, as Grybauskaite is trying not to fall into disfavor of the NATO elite.

Grybauskaite announced plans to reach a two-percent plan during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who opened one of the new NATO centers in Lithuania.

Grybauskaite writes in Facebook:
Together with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, they opened a NATO office in Vilnius. Its creation is another proof that the alliance is taking all measures for the defense of Lithuania and the security of our people.

        Still, there was something Soviet left in her. She even wants to increase military spending ahead of schedule, without waiting for the end of the five-year plan.

        no gentlemen, political buggers out of competition ... only they talked about a bear ...

        and on the topic so ... 2% allocated to the defense industry according to NATO standard will allow you to rent a tank from Latvia for a longer period ... to the detriment of the Estonians true ...

          And what, someone in NATE fulfills the 2% GDP norm for military spending? As far as I remember, only Germany puffed up and Britain (I won’t lie, I’m not sure). The rest scored big and thick, the expenses were just at the level of Sprotostan.

      Lithuania will make every effort to ensure that expenditures from the state budget on the military needs of the country grow to 2% of GDP by 2018.

      And let's by 2017!
      Everything will be a memorable reference - the 100th anniversary of the October Socialist Revolution!
      And the transition to another weapon standard, i.e. only American or European weapons will be bought!

    The President of Lithuania needs to reduce the country's GDP and the percentage will grow by itself. Introduce "next" sanctions against the Russian Federation, which will contribute to this.

    Well, the main thing is to crow, and there, at least, do not bloom. 0,9% of Lithuania’s GDP is probably the decisive factor in NATO’s financial problems. But Lithuania itself is not the richest state, the population will be grateful.

    Well, when they only know how to yap))) The resources of the USSR were exhausted. The population has declined by almost a quarter. Soon as before the Second World War there will be a village-village. But the currency hut that broke into the presidency can still be pulled with a leg to the last. How, then, should one not respect oneself so that the people and their country can be driven into the baseboard in such a way?

    I really have a horse in the stable gave birth to a foal (girl). I’ll definitely call her Dalk. I think with normal care and upbringing a normal horse will grow up and not as stupid a mare as President Grybauskaite.

    In my opinion, the VO site pays too much attention to the blathering of the Baltic mongrels. It is clear that the site is trying to capture everyone’s attention, but ... IMHO, it’s enough to create a section, for example, “Curiosities”. And bring there ANY sayings of the Baltic moseks. Really, that will be enough. They won’t say good things about Russia, but all the bad things on their part are just laughter.

    Yes hr ... n with her, with far and Lithuania, even though at least 3% deducts. Well, they will buy on installments some kind of corvette from the Germans and a couple of tanks from the French — they won’t add a special headache to us, and the remaining% will be paid for a long time. Especially since the LNG floating terminal is still hanging around the neck. Everything is like in the USA, life on credit.
