Seimas adopted amendments to the Military Service Act, which made national service compulsory and permanent. Local Delfi edition reports this.

The adopted document states that "military conscription becomes permanent and carried out every year".

3.5 to 4 thousand young men from 19 to 26 years old will be recruited for 9 months each year.

In Lithuania, the military conscription was suspended in 2008 and returned last year as a response to the aggressive actions of Russia in Ukraine, as well as to accelerate the filling of military units for reserve training.
