Lithuania reintroduces conscription over security concerns

Lithuania is going to reintroduce conscription over concerns about "the current geopolitical environment" in the Baltic states according to President Dalia Grybauskaite.

She did not reference Ukraine but there are fears in neighbouring countries over potential further Russian aggression.

Katya Adler spoke to two Lithuanian law students, Laurynas Juozapaitas and Lukas Borusevicius, about the reintroduction of conscription.
