Visitors were welcome to visit the stands of the Lithuanian Defense Forces not only for various educational and recreational activities, but also for the opportunity to interact with our country's allies - soldiers of the NATO Forces from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

We can be pleased with the involvement of the participants and their knowledge,” says Tomas Vievesis.
