The European Scout Office Reports on Lithuania’s Return to the World Organization of the Scout Movement:

On 25 July, the World Organization welcomed two new national member organizations in Europe: Leituvos Skautija (Lithuanian Scouting) and Sojuz na Izvidnici na Makedonija (The Scout Association of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). Leituvos Skautija has a membership of 1,500 boys and girls while Sojuz na Izvidnici na Makedonija has more than 3,500 male and female members. We look forward to welcoming many of them in all international Scout events in the future.

It is produced by the European Scout Office and is distributed by fax to all member associations in the European Scout Region and the Europe Region WAGGGS, and others.

A Chronicle of Scouting in Eastern Europe

With the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe and Russia, Scouting has returned to many lands where it had previously taken root. These pages chronicle the return of former members and the addition of new members to the World Organization of the Scout Movement. They also report the growth of Scouting in the other nations of Eastern Europe.

Scouting organizations around the world are assisting in the growth of Scouting in both Eastern Europe and Russia. They have been identified by country where information is available.

Currently, the "Chronicle" reports on the progress of Scouting in 19 countries in Central and Eastern Europe. The Chronicle Home Page provides links to each.
