Lithuanian border guards and armed forces plan to hold joint exercises on August 27 in preparation for potential threats on the Belarusian border.

This was stated by the Minister of Internal Affairs Agne Bilotaite, LRT reports.

According to the Interior Minister, "It is planned to conduct exercises (on August 27) together with the Armed Forces to test several scenarios."


She clarified that the first scenario concerns migration, "in case of any unusual situations," and the second involves responding to a "hybrid military threat" at the border.

"We have recently updated the plan for covering the border, that is, the interaction between the State Border Guard Service (VSAT) and the military at different threat levels," Bilotaite said.
