Due to the threat of large-scale flow of illegal migrants from Belarus, Lithuanian Interior Ministry offers to introduce the state of emergency.
Lrt.lt cited Minister Agne Bilotaite who said the authority has been closely monitoring the situation on Polish-Belarusian border. "Of course it means we can expect such invasions and attacks. So all of our authorities are mostly prepared, and so is our army", she marked.
At the same time, according to her, so far, the situation on the border is stable. However, the Minister claimed that Lithuanian authorities are getting prepared for all possible scenarios.
"Taking into account this really serious situation, the Ministry offers to introduce the state of emergency. This offer should be considered by the government", Bilotaite added.
If the state of emergency is introduced, it will only concern border municipalities of Lithuania.
