Rukla’s civilian population numbers less than 2,000. Since 2017, NATO’s Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroup (EFP) consisting of 1,200 soldiers has been deployed in the village. Troops from Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg, Croatia, and France are attached to Lithuanian Army’s Iron Wolf Brigade. Rukla is one of four locations in the Baltics hosting NATO battlegroups deployed as a deterrent to neighbouring Russia, a situation that’s dramatically increased the region’s geopolitical significance. However, this doesn’t help solve the village’s long-lasting local problems.

"The Sounds of War in the Heart of Europe”, a multimedia long-form by freelance journalist Prune Antoine, Gil Skorwid, and photographer Jan Zappner published on Mediapart.fr. The journalistic research in the Baltics was funded with Journalismfund.eu’s European Cross-border grant. The team of three journalists travelled to Russia’s Kaliningrad, Lithuania, and Poland to understand how and why, since Russia’s invasion into Ukraine, the Eastern Baltic region has fallen into anxiety and paranoia. Their multimedia reportage focused on social tensions and consequences of the militarisation on everyday life in the region.
