Lithuania increases the cost of maintaining the army and incurs new non-combat losses among conscripts

37
Lithuania is striving with all its might to bring the expenditure budget for the maintenance of the army to the 2% required by NATO standards. To this end, next year another increase in military spending is planned - by 150 million euros. If such an increase in defense spending occurs, then Vilnius will spend a total of about 0,73 billion euros for the maintenance of the army.


According to the main financial department of the Baltic republic, at the moment defense expenditures amount to 1,48% of GDP. After the growth of the expenditure item on 150 million euros, the total percentage of spending will increase to 1,77%.

However, this is also not enough for NATO, and therefore Lithuania will in the future increase the costs associated with maintaining the army and the infrastructure of the North Atlantic Alliance in order to try to please NATO functionaries and owners.

Lithuanian Defense Minister Juozas Olekas has previously announced that Lithuania plans to reach the level of defense expenditure required by Brussels (2% of GDP) by the end of 2018 of the year.

Lithuania increases the cost of maintaining the army and incurs new non-combat losses among conscripts


Meanwhile, Lithuania continues to suffer non-combat losses among conscripts. If the other day it was reported that two soldiers serving in conscription were injured as a result of violation of safety standards when firing an anti-tank grenade launcher, and another was sent to the hospital due to numerous tick bites, today the Ministry of Defense of the country distributed the first death among the "conscripts." The soldier died from exacerbation of an infectious disease. At least, that is what they say in the main military department of the republic.

Delphi cites the statement of the department:
We regret to inform you that Private M.J. died in the Kaunas infectious diseases hospital this morning. (full name is not called - comment. "IN"). The Ministry of Defense and the leadership of the Lithuanian army expresses deep condolences to the relatives of the deceased serviceman.


It is known that ordinary M.Y. He began his 4 service on April of this year.

      We have something to do with this. One battalion less, one more. Lithuania is not an opponent of Russia.

      You should immediately take care of the protection of the valiant l / s of the Lithuanian Armed Forces from the bites of blood-sucking insects. I propose the following solution

    Two soldiers serving on conscription were injured as a result of a violation of safety standards when firing from an anti-tank grenade launcher, and another was sent to the hospital due to numerous tick bites, today the country's Ministry of Defense distributed a message about the first death among “conscripts”. A soldier died from an exacerbation of an infectious disease.


    Yes, they will have no pace at all at such a pace ... What will Europiloids coax with?

    And the Lithuanians did not lie about German self-propelled guns. They are already undergoing training in the Bundeswehr. Probably, this is how everyone will be shoved to the "smaller brothers" along our border, and they will buy new modernized ones for themselves. After all, the Germans have adopted a program for tanks and artillery.

      According to the logic, the technician who fired back in a quick order should change position, and those that pull the rope into the dagon after it will run on the run jumping up ???

        They are afraid that an otvetka from the Russians will arrive, therefore the rope is longer themselves in the bushes and pulled from there, and then they wait half a day if there is no answer, they change their position. laughing

    Well, it doesn’t happen to anyone. People get used to the “far-fetched fear” of Russia, because they didn’t want to live in good neighborly relations.

    This is one of the first indicators of the illiteracy of commanders. In peacetime, a soldier must master the art of war, and not die from tick bites and diarrhea.

      Do you know that in the Russian Army, the percentage of personnel losses in exercises is laid down? In 2000, in one of the units in our north, 2/3 conscripts fell ill with pneumonia? And how much can you tell about non-combat losses among our soldiers at the present time .... What are we happy about? The fact that the boy who just began to die died?

    I’m embarrassed to ask, did you whisper in your ear Shoigu or Patrushev? Or maybe Misha is 2 cm? Where does the statistics come from? Perhaps you personally pay compensation to the dead and know exactly how much.

    They love to play their own goal in the Baltic states, oh, how they love. The main thing is not what is going on at home, but what the "friends" will think, or else they will give something (though not for free).

    If I'm not mistaken, then when shooting from the ground - yes. Comrade gunners, if not right, correct.

    "The soldier died from an exacerbation of an infectious disease. At least, that's what they say in the main military department of the republic."

    In the 21st century, die in the army from diarrhea. It would be better if they gave a gun, he would die like a man.
