Lithuania: Government seeks more direct flights to Germany

The Lithuanian government seeks to have more direct flights to Germany, BNS reports. Defence Minister Arvydas Anusauskas said that the more frequent flight connections would help German troops stationed in Lithuania. Also, Lithuania plans to open kindergartens and schools for the children of German soldiers, Anusauskas added. Lithuania’s defence chief, General Valdemaras Rupsys, said that the specific size of the German brigade to be deployed to Lithuania would be clear in the middle of autumn 2023.
