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.

A Chronicle of Scouting in Eastern
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.
