DELFI / Šarūnas Mažeika

Nikolaj Krylov has been deemed by the court of having committed a criminal act, the court’s spokeswoman Skirmante Zelenkiene told BNS on Wednesday. Since he is ill, the court ordered involuntary treatment in the form of ambulatory observation under conditions of primary health care.

The court heard that Krylov, 93, was deputy chief of the Soviet State Security Ministry’s division in Varena District, eastern Lithuania, and was involved in killing Lithuanian guerilla fighters.

All in all, around 50,000 guerilla fighters, knows in Lithuania as “forest brothers”, were killed while fighting Soviet occupation in postwar Lithuania.
