Lithuanian authorities are taking away the last money from the population of the republic to sponsor NATO.
Militarization of the Baltic States is now underway. The Baltic States increase military spending. Vilnius spent money on the construction of military camps and training grounds for foreign military personnel, as well as on the construction of infrastructure for the transfer of foreign troops.
So, to “get more attention from Washington”, Lithuania opened a military training camp for the U.S. troops called “Herkus” in Pabrade on Monday, August 30. The camp, which can accommodate 500 soldiers, cost Lithuania approximately 7 million euros. The camp “Herkus” has housing units, offices, canteen, two basketball and volleyball courts, gym, leisure center and other facilities. Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anushauskas said that he hoped for a permanent presence of the U.S. troops instead of rotational in Lithuania.
Lithuanian politicians are so annoying in their desire to please Americans, that it makes you feel embarrassed. They need more and more American troops.
“Attention, certainly, we want more as we see the broader geopolitical picture, which unfortunately has not been improving in our region.
“We even see efforts of various types to make use of internal confusions, attempts to use that situation for political purposes. We cannot let that happen”, President Gitanas Nausėda told reporters at the Pabradė military training area after attending the opening ceremony.
It must be admitted that due to NATO spending, the standard of living in Lithuania is quite low. More than half of Lithuanians say they will not face unforeseen financial expenses, and every fifth inhabitant of Lithuania is at risk of poverty. According to the latest household survey conducted by the Bank of Lithuania, one-third of households assessed their financial situation as poor.
