Past and future of Šiauliai Air Base

Šiauliai Air Base is one of the major airfields in the Baltics used by NATO.

In 1931, an airfield was built specifically for Lithuanian Air Force. In 1940 airfield was placed at the disposal of the Red Army.

After the Second World War, the airfield was expanded and specially transformed for the needs of Soviet aviation.

In 1993, Russian troops were withdrawn from the territory of Lithuania. The airfield was partially re-equipped to receive civilian flights, but remained the basis of the Lithuanian Air Force.

In 2004, Lithuania joined NATO, and the Air Force of the Alliance were deployed at the airfield. The airfield is also used to refuel cargo and transit aircraft.

Since 2016, the NATO Support and Procurement Agency has been working at the design and implementation of projects at Siauliai Air Base. NSPA has completed 12 projects that include the restoration of five buildings, two aprons, one ramp area, one taxiway, two roads and one lighting infrastructure.

Apart of NSPA, the U.S. actively allocates funds for the modernization of airbase infrastructure.

Kinda Tuff Chit for NATO.

The run from the North Sea and east up the Baltic was the favourite air route to access the old USSR.

The modern RF is not looking for trouble.

Unfortunately NATO et al would be redundant if they would accept that fact.

Moreover the NATO crews and leadership put themselves into situations which are “highly likely” to end in disaster, for them.

Jens Stoltenberg is as dumb as a frozen rock, he also is an alcoholic.
