Lithuania is a nation state in northern Europe. It was formerly part of the USSR.

Russophobia

The Integrity Initiative leak revealed that the Lithuianian defence establishment has been working closely with the UK Deep state to "counter Russian disinformation".

Reintroduction of conscription

In 2008, Lithuania abandoned military conscription. In 2015, the Lithuanian State Defence Council (Dalia Grybauskaitė, Juozas Olekas, Jonas Vytautas Zukas and Loreta Grauziniene) called for its reintroduction. Lithuanian Defence Minister Juozas Olekas stated that the “changed geopolitical situation and insufficient manning of units of the Lithuanian Armed Forces leads to a temporary reintroduction of conscription.”[1]

Criminal Prosectuion for false flag accusation

In 2011, Lithuanian authorities initiated prosecution against journalist and diplomat Algirdas Paleckis for "denial of Soviet aggression against Lithuania".[2] As part of his journalistic research, Paleckis stated he had found several witnesses and ballistic assessments that seemed to indicate that there were secret snipers on the roof near the Vilnius TV centre who were shooting civilians, as opposed to the Lithuanian official narrative which declares this to have been done by Soviet troops. He then went on to state publicly that “it appears that in January 1991 our own people were shooting at their natives”. A Vilnius court had vindicated Paleckis in January 2012. The prosecution had appealed, and Paleckis was sentenced to a fine of 10,400 litas (€3,100) on June 12, 2012.[3]

The prosecution against Paleckis was initiated when he spoke on the radio about the widely discussed circumstances of the events of January 13th, both in Russia and in other countries – about the contribution of Gene Sharp, his students and other technologists of the colour revolution to the-then events in the Baltic States, the Caucasus and other Soviet republics that went along the path of separatism.

He was arrested again in 2018 on suspicion of spying for Russia.[4][5][6] As of March 2020 he has been jailed without conviction (or start of legal proceedings) for more than 500 days. More than distinguished 60 signatories across the political spectrum signed an appeal against the prosecution, stating his imprisonment is neither legal nor fair"[7]

Tim Sweijs“In Lithuania, they've now switched to developing 'alternative narratives that the Lithuanian Ministry of Defence is developing together with the ministries of education and culture. If I ask Raimundas Karoblis if that isn't a form of utilizing propaganda, he answers resolute but semantically: 'It's about an alternative narrative'.”Tim Sweijs29 November 2017
