Lithuania’s War Manual to Prepare Citizens for Russian Invasion

Lithuania is publishing a manual to advise its citizens on how to survive a war on its soil as the country’s Defense Minister warn its Russian neighbor “is not friendly.”

The manual, which the Defense Ministry will send to libraries next week and also distribute at army events, says Lithuanians should resist foreign occupation with demonstrations and strikes, “or at least doing your job worse than usual.”

“The examples of Georgia and Ukraine, which both lost a part of their territory, show us that we cannot rule out a similar kind of situation here, and that we should be ready,” Defense Minister Juozas Olekas said.

“When Russia started its aggression in Ukraine, here in Lithuania our citizens understood that our neighbor is not friendly,” Olekas added.
