“Galakteko dangers": in Lithuania recruits "ended"

The widely lit return call to the army service in Lithuania, as it turns out, seriously stalled. The official representative of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, Victoria Zeminite, said that the Lithuanian counterparts of military registration and enlistment offices were forced to state a significant increase in the number of draft dodgers in the country. According to Zeminite, every fifth potential Lithuanian draftee ignores the summons (this is on average throughout the country). The largest number of draft dodgers is noted in the capital of the country. According to some data, in Vilnius the number of young people refusing to serve in the Lithuanian army reaches 30%.

It is worth recalling that in Lithuania military recruitment was resumed this year. The President of the country, Dalia Grybauskaite, during the making of the “landmark” decision, stated that this is a deliberate decision that will significantly enhance the security of Lithuania and increase its potential within the North Atlantic Alliance.

There was no call-up for military service in the Lithuanian state since 2008, but Red Dahl, stating that, they say, “Russian aggression” and all that, decided to revive it, probably expecting praise from the main NATO functionaries. Praise indeed was, there were loud statements about Lithuania’s striving to strengthen the “North Atlantic brotherhood,” but now the statistics voiced by the Lithuanian Defense Ministry clearly spoils the picture of both Lithuania and NATO, which needs Lithuanian, forgive, “young meat” for its numerous democratizing operations in around the world.

In the plans of the main defense department of Lithuania, it was already this year bringing the conscription to 3 thousand people (per year). For reference: the total number of Lithuanian Armed Forces in 2015 was 12 thousand people. At the same time, in Vilnius they stated that the Scandinavian armies were chosen as a model, the combat capability of which is great precisely because of the balance developed between the number of contract soldiers and draftees.

As a result, the Lithuanian authorities decided to revive the conscription system, to set the bar at 9 for months, to recruit, by the draft system, in addition to boys between the ages of 19 and 26, they also want to be women. It was noted that the young army replenishment will not only exercise in the drill and operation of weapons, but will learn foreign languages, improve computer skills, learn the rules of emergency medical care, etc. It was reported that salaries will be paid to conscripts a few hundred euros a month. For the maintenance of one recruit, the government has committed to allocate 9 thousand euros (per thousand euros per month of service per person).

The first stage of the conscription in Lithuania went well. The picture of the Lithuanian media gave the appropriate: literally a queue of boys and girls lined up to the recruiting stations. The Ministry of Defense of the country reported that the number of volunteers is such that it is not particularly necessary to send out the agenda. The volunteers seemed to be covering the stated need of the Lithuanian army in recruits. However, further problems became apparent: the queues first became shorter, then disappeared altogether, and six months after the official return of the conscription system, the Lithuanian military commissars began to sound the alarm: the agenda of the Lithuanian potential conscripts are ignored. Moreover, they are ignored for the simple reason that for the Baltic draft dodgers, in fact, no adequate system of responsibility was provided for. Apparently, the defense ministry officials seriously believed that volunteer flows in a country with a population of less than 3 would never run out of millions. The forecast did not come true ... The streams dried up ...

In fact, responsibility for draft dodgers at the legislative level in Lithuania is still provided. But how much it is capable of giving a deviationist a reason to think is a separate question. So, if a young man is not on the agenda, then a fine of 28 to 289 Euros can expect him. In addition, the possibility of imprisonment of up to three years is provided for. And if such a fine amount is unlikely to frighten the majority of Lithuanian draft dodgers, then the prison term, it would seem, looks like a very harsh punishment. But why, in this case, the Lithuanian “mowers”, so to speak, are not inspired by such a punishment and ignore the calls of the “generalissimo in a skirt” by Dali Grybauskaite?

The fact is that according to Lithuanian laws, all of the above punishments can be avoided if they fail to prove the existence of a good reason for failure to appear on the agenda. Those who are not eager to go to the service in the Lithuanian Armed Forces, and use it. Many have left Lithuania long ago and are studying or working in other countries of the European Union. One of the newfangled phenomena for Lithuania: registration with relatives in neighboring Latvia or Poland. They say that the young man did not ignore the agenda, he was simply outside the beloved Lithuanian Motherland and was caring for his dyspnea with a third cousin somewhere in Jurmala or Poznan ...

Baltic Information Portal Delphi (referring to the representative of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense, Major Adamonis) reports that now there are already about 8 thousands of statements in the police. All of them relate to draft dodgers, who ignored the agendas and did not appear at the appointed time to “focal points”. All these persons may receive court orders for fines. At least that's what Major Adamonis said.

This number looks somewhat strange ... After all, as was already noted, the main military department of Lithuania stated that 3 should be called in thousands of new recruits per year. If we consider that the call started only this year, plus the first request of the Ministry of Defense was covered by volunteers (and the military department of the country itself stated so), where did the 8 of thousands of draft dodgers come from? Or did the Ministry of Defense of the country decide to be safe from the beginning and sent agendas to all those who can be called up by age?

“Galakteko dangers": in Lithuania recruits "ended"

The representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Baltic Republic, Victoria Tseminite, confuses the tracks, as they say, claiming that at the moment there is not enough “2015 recruits” (that is, 50 already exists) to complete the draft campaign 2950. I remember the statement of Ms. Zemite about 20% of draft dodgers and the information of Major Adamonis about 8 of thousands of summons ignored by young people between the ages of 19 and 26. Simple mathematical calculations lead to the conclusion that 20% of draft dodgers are those very 8 thousand people ... But if so, then it turns out that Lithuanian military registration and enlistment offices sent as many 40 thousands of subpoenas. And on the basis of such a large-scale (by Lithuanian standards) campaign, even the declared 3 thousands of people cannot be recruited ... In this connection, it is believed that the number of draft dodgers in the Republic of Lithuania is still somewhat higher than 20% ...

All these facts, unfavorable to official Vilnius, indicate that over the 7 years of absence of draft campaigns, a whole youth layer has grown in the country, which is clearly not ready to accept statements by the same Grybauskaite about the need to resist "Russian aggression". Young people must not be able to understand why they are trying to be put under the gun, if Lithuania joined NATO, and if the NATO military "are ready at any moment to defend an independent Lithuanian state" ... After all, the Lithuanian authorities themselves were ready to defend them.

Moreover, obviously not all young Lithuanians are eager to be part of the NATO contingent somewhere in Mali under the slogan of defending the borders of Lithuania, although the Lithuanian Defense Ministry has said from the beginning of 90 that not a single Lithuanian soldier will participate in missions outside of his country. Participate ... How nice little involved. And let it be until the contract, but the recruits also have "every chance." NATO does not have fun ...

    At the same time, they declared in Vilnius that the Scandinavian armies were chosen as a model, the combat efficiency of which is great precisely from the worked out balance between the number of contract soldiers and conscripts.
    The question is, when did the sample with its "high combat capability" last fought?
    And the fact that they don’t get used to statistics is not so used to it, they lie at every step and are so used to it that they do not try to do it believable. And who in the photo? Valorous Lithuanian army or right sector ?!

    Lithuania has run out of conscripts

    But did they even exist here, except for a couple of dozen volunteers who could not find work from the villages because of their mental abilities? :)
    it is believed that the number of draft dodgers in the Republic of Lithuania is still slightly higher than 20% ...

    There is no opinion that 99 out of 100 simply threw out or did not take the agenda. Anyway, there will be nothing for it if they brought it to the parents, and the draftee himself did not sign :)
    In connection with this, the representatives of the military registration and enlistment offices began to stupidly go to educational institutions and hand out summons to fulfill the "norm." No one will skip tests and exams ...

The wall, the bark towards Russia, now also the military enlistment offices. The fight in parliament is not enough. Oh yes, and hundreds of thousands of military personnel from the Buryat armored police and thousands of GRU officers killed on their territory.

    It is necessary to diversify the call, as the Balts like to do, for example, with gas supplies. Ask to increase quotas for migrants and instead of refugee camps drive them immediately to the barracks, until they understand, you look at the demobilization and so on. I give the idea for free.

    Now, only volunteers have come to serve in the Lithuanian army. The Lithuanian Ministry of Defense is a service of only volunteers, it also plans for future conscriptions. So far, predictions come true. In the coming years, it is planned to increase the army in Lithuania to 20 thousand people. A paramilitary "union of shooters" is being actively formed, these are mainly hunters who have their own rifles with optics and night Those who know the area well, including those who have combat experience gained in Afghanistan since the days of the USSR.
    Abroad, only contractors are on a voluntary basis.
    Next year, the first modern German BMP "Boxer" will arrive in Lithuania. We expect that the units of the Lithuanian army will become part of the NATO tank brigade, which is supposed to be stationed in Lithuania with full logistic support and air defense means.

      Dear, this is all clear. You can even collect 100 thousand into your amusing army and buy up a bunch of armored European autopunk, etc. etc.
      It is not clear another. NAK UYA ???
      For the Baltic countries there is no opportunity to saw off part of the mainland and stick to the shores of America, and therefore, we will always (even when neither you nor Gribauskaite or the USA become) be in the status of neighbors. As in any apartment building, a good neighbor means a lot to peaceful coexistence and mutual support.
      25 years ago, when you were allowed to graze, instead of taking full advantage of your geographical location and being useful both for Europe and for Russia, while receiving your dividends from both, you decided to put on a yoke slavery from the new owner - the United States, which cannot be called a neighbor either. This seemed to you a little and you got into bondage from Europe. You have done everything to forget about independence once and for all. Your elite is hooked by your distant neighbors, and your economy is killed by your European neighbors. You were given money so that you would slaughter your fleet, destroy your nuclear energy and you would do it with pleasure, for money! Russia did not destroy your light industry and chemistry with electronics - you did it. Has Russia invaded your farms at least once in 25 years? No! Has Russia at gunpoint reduced your population by more than half a million people in 25 years? No! These are all the merits of your rulers! They understand that if today we remove the hostile image of Russia, then tomorrow the population of the country will ask them, why did we live worse? I must admit that the first decade of your "independence" has become like a magnet for all kinds of rogues from the national minorities of the Finougorsk world living in Russia, who, playing on the national feelings of their peoples, set you up as an example and emphasized that having separated from Russia you healed like cheese in butter. Your GDP was growing and everyone thought that this was happiness, but it turned out that this happiness was built on loans and the sale of valuable assets that you inherited from the USSR, including the metal received from the sawn fleet and factories to please European business. That's it, there is nothing more to cut, there is no one to sell products, all you are allowed is not to go over the quotas (or a fine), you were forced to pay 2% of GDP (of what you can earn at all) into NATO, you are being shoved into bearded refugees, your gene pool is rapidly falls and in 30 years you will become an endangered people. If during the "occupation" your number grew by a million, then during the period of independence you became half a million fewer without any aggression. Now you will be forced to die in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan in the name of US interests.
      Are these your interests?
      Apparently the past 25 years have not taught you anything, if you proudly declare that you will collect 20 thousand. Bayonets and hunters))) You are a naive person.
      If you simply collect the hunters of Siberia or the Urals, then there will be more of them than you have the whole population with in your army taken together, they do not even need to write out summons, just one ticket with licenses is enough. And unlike your shooters on deer on baits, our mostly chased witches in the taiga are chasing them.
      Calm down and just think how to save your Lithuania from the American occupation.
      We have enough of our land.

    The Ministry of Defense statistics clearly spoils the picture of both Lithuania itself and NATO, which needs Lithuanian, sorry, “young meat” for its many democratization operations in different parts of the world.

    Something I doubt that the "democratizing" contingent needs conscripts (no matter what nationality). What is the conscription army, the whole world saw in the first Chechen one. Sending such youngsters for half a ball and providing them is a real headache for any military operation. Recently, democratizers have increasingly attracted mercenaries, but in the case of larger-scale DBs, the army will be based on contract soldiers: both the level of professionalism is higher, and the moral and psychological component (well, 18-year-old boys will not be able to effectively participate in the DB).

There are no natural resources, no population, the climate is so-so, not for everybody. Capture to feed these Russophobes later?

    and if it’s without sarcasm, it’s interesting that these recruits are not satisfied with their army. Yes, and the period of 9 months is not 2 and 3 years. They feed badly or what? or these generations are used to the formula ... everything is for them, but from they’ll do nothing ... well, they’ll feed someone else’s army.

      Economically active youth have the following problems:
      1) took a loan, bought cows, began to produce dairy products, then bam - the agenda. They laugh at the military enlistment office - bring your cows, we will eat them.
      2) left for England, began to study, here bam - the agenda. Come back, do your duty to the country of Mushroom.
      The problem of the Lithuanian army is the low quality level of conscripts (health, education, physical development). Armed forces are an attribute of the state. But Lithuania is too small a country in which there are practically no resources. Probably, Lithuania can form two or three full-fledged infantry battalions to participate in allied operations. Lithuania's functions in NATO: 1) to provide territory for access to the territory of the Russian Federation and Belarus, 2) to demand the strengthening of NATO and the deployment of bases on its territory, 3) to politically ensure the Kiev regime on behalf of the United States.

Someone who has overwhelmed for a long time in zakordonia, nowhere from the Lithuanians nowhere to go. As the yeast was thrown into the latrine after the collapse, so they flooded around the world.

    In the post-Soviet era, especially after joining the EU (2004), with the opening of borders to the common market, emigration became widespread. From 1990 to 2010, about 615 thousand people left Lithuania, according to data provided by the Department of Statistics of Lithuania (according to unofficial data , about a million people left Lithuania) - therefore, in recent years a fifth of the population has left the country. Moreover, in the period from 2001 to 2010, only 64,2 thousand people came to Lithuania from other republics.

    In 2007-2011 On average, 44 Lithuanians emigrated per year, and 9000 each immigrated, that is, on average 35 more people emigrated annually than they entered.
    In 2011, 53,9 thousand residents emigrated from Lithuania.

    However, it is necessary to distinguish between temporary (labor) migration and departure for permanent residence (although many who have left "for work" have very weak intentions to return to their homeland). The largest Lithuanian diasporas live in the UK, Ireland, Spain and Germany.

    Professor of the Department of Lithuanian History of Vilnius University Ludas Truska spoke out in the sense that the current emigration is more like an evacuation

    “Despite the fact that Lithuanian emigration has been going on for a century and a half, it has never been so massive ...”
    At the beginning of 2012, President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite took part in the work of the “Stay in Lithuania!” Movement. She met in the presidential palace with the organizers of a movement aimed at convincing young people not to seek a better life in Western countries, but to create conditions for themselves in Lithuania. Dalia Grybauskaite emphasized that such an action is necessary to minimize emigration from Lithuania. The head of state handed the main organizers of the action symbolic stickers with the words “Stay in Lithuania”, which were distributed to the inhabitants of Lithuania.

    Population decline in Lithuania from 2000–2013 was the most intense in the European Union (every year the country lost about 30 thousand inhabitants) [/ i]

    Anatoly Shariy has a video with a survey of European youth over whether they will go to war in the event of a war in Europe.
    Almost all of them answered NO! There no one wants to fight FOR YOUR STATE! Everyone hopes to escape to a calm place.
    In the post-Soviet countries, there is still a desire to protect their country, but even this is quickly leveled out by common "European values." So they only have a mercenary army, which will not be able to provide the necessary strength in case of large-scale hostilities. Mobilizations will lead to mass desertions.
