In February 2017, five drunken Czech soldiers fought in Klaipeda, in June four drunken German soldiers were beat up in Jonava, a month later a drunken Dutch soldiers staged a fight over a bill in a restaurant. All the robbers eventually went home: Lithuanian police detained them, but each time they let them go. Lithuania and other Baltic countries do not have the right to judge NATO soldiers for crimes committed in the Baltic territories.

In September 2017, residents of the Adazhi village near Riga complained about the mountains of rubbish left behind by the NATO military stationed at the local military base. Adazhi residents found jars, plastic bottles, used condoms and packs of army rations near the site.

On June 7, 2018, four armored personnel carriers of the U.S. Army, Stryker, collided in a major road accident in the Prienai district. 13 U.S. troops sought medical assistance.

Another accident happened on the night of June 9 near the town of Kazlu-Ruda: the Stryker armored personnel carrier drove off the road and crashed into a tree.

Next another accident: not far from the town of Pabrade, an army SUV with two military men turned over.

With great joy we can say that none of the civilians were injured. However, this is only an exception to the rule.

All these incidents are hidden from the public, because these military criminals go unpunished and have no problems with the law. NATO soldiers in Baltic states are doing what they want and no one can stop them.

By increasing the number of exercises in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, the NATO leadership is putting at risk the populations of these countries, their women and children. But if disaster happens, NATO soldiers will just fly away, and the inhabitants of Lithuania or Latvia will be left faced with the consequences.

As long as the ruling elite of the Baltic countries continues to eat out of the U.S. hands and allows for gigantic military maneuvers, the people will fear of war in the Baltic lands.
