 While observing events in Crimea, Lithuanians do not feel safe. 87% of Lithuanian citizens in major cities believe that Russia could attempt to occupy Lithuania or part of it, DELFI reported.

Residents in major Lithuanian cities believe a threat against the country is very likely, according to the survey by the weekly magazine Veidas, and distributed by the market research and consulting company Prime consulting carried out during the period of March 18-20. Russia’s threat towards Lithuania seems unlikely to a little over 8% of major cities citizens, who tend to believe that Lithuania is perfectly safe, while under the protection of NATO.

The “Veidas” survey also shows that the Lithuanian people are against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine.

78.2% of Lithuanians do not support Russia’s actions in Crimea.

On the other hand, one fifth of respondents support Russia’s position in the current events.
