“As you know, the Schengen Area is one border, and the ongoing events in Europe are raising serious concern. Today we in Lithuania perhaps don’t have such problems but nobody is sure that those problems will not emerge in here. So I believe that such a raise of this level will be an additional stimulus to various institutions to seriously review their capabilities and probably review their level of preparedness if something happens,” Gediminas Grina, head of the State Security Department, told a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Up until now, there’s been in place a government resolution adopted in 2010 and stipulating the lowest terrorism threat level in Lithuania.

“Following the raising of the terrorism threat level, national and municipal institutions are recommended to continue to operate under their daily level of preparedness,” the government said.
