Germany, Lithuania, and Security on NATO’s Eastern Flank
The Russian invasion of Ukraine threatens the political, security, and economic order in Europe and has sparked major changes in Germany’s foreign and security policy. Germany’s support for Ukraine and deployment in the NATO Enhanced Forward Presence (EFP) in Lithuania has been increasing in reaction to the renewed threats on the alliance’s borders. This webinar will shed light on the growing German commitments, the increasing Lithuanian capabilities, and the contributions they have made to the defense of NATO territory and its allies in this vulnerable location so necessary to assure European security.
