As the town of Rukla, central Lithuania, awaits deployment of more than 1,000 NATO troops, the military town has already improved the infrastructure and plans to do more work for 5.8 million euros before the arrival of the entire battalion in mid-2017, Verslo Žinios business daily said.

The costs incurred by the Lithuanian Armed Forces in connection to serving the NATO troops three meals a day and fuel will be fully covered by the delegating countries. The costs should total about 5-6 million euros a year, calculations suggest.

The Norfa and Aibe supermarkets in Rukla are convinced that the battalion's troops will help raise sales and, consequently, profits. According to the daily, the stores consider hiring additional staff to answer the new needs.
