Twelve members of parliament introduced an anti-NATO bill, the first in any Baltic republic. The bill calls for Lithuanian neutrality and renounces NATO membership. Sponsors include Kazimiera Prunskiene, who headed the government as prime minister in 1990-1991, after the declaration of independence. The bill attracts ardent nationalists opposed to Western influences as well as pro-Russian forces, but it still seems very far from any chance of passage. The parliament has already voted not to take the bill up in the current session.
