    Lithuania publishes 2019 military conscription lists

    VILNIUS, Jan 16, BNS - The Lithuanian Armed Forces published this year's military conscription lists on Wednesday. 

    The lists, available online at, include the names of 31,068 men aged between 19 and 26 years. 

    Some 3,827 of them will be called up for a nine-month military service in more than 20 military units. 

    A part of them will undergo two months of basic training at the Lithuanian Great Hetman Jonusas Radvila Training Regiment in Rukla before being sent to their designated units. 

    Young men aged between 18 and 38 years who are not on the lists and women of this age range can volunteer for enlistment.

    Lithuania reintroduced military conscription in 2015 in response to Russia's actions in Ukraine and the Baltic Sea region.
