Episode 12 : Militarisation at the heart of a political year in Lithuania

With presidential, referendum, and European and parliamentary elections, 2024 is a busy political year for Lithuanians. Yet, the debate mainly focuses on Russia rather than domestic issues. Since the Ukraine invasion, the Baltics have faced renewed tensions with Russia. This month, newly re-elected President Gitanas Nausėda has accelerated Lithuanian militarisation. How is the war in Ukraine shaping Lithuania’s political landscape? And how does it compare with the rest of Europe?
