Ready for Russia: Lithuanians taught how to resist invasion


From The Guardian:

“The Lithuanian defence ministry has issued 30,000 copies of an instruction manual advising citizens on what to do in the event of a Russia-led invasion.

The release of the 75-page paperback, entitled Guide to Active Resistance, comes amid increased fears of Russian aggression following the election of Donald Trump, who stated during his campaign that he would review the US’s position on defending Nato allies.

Such manuals have been published three times since 2014, when they were first issued as part of Lithuania’s response to the Kremlin’s annexation of Crimea.

The first edition, How to Act in Extreme Situations or Instances of War, included instructions on forms of civil disobedience in the event of occupation, describing strikes, blockades, disinformation and the organisation of cyber-attacks against the enemy.”
