passenger trains from russia continued to pass through lithuania without any problems. however, travellers are not allowed to get off the train, like here at a station in vilnius. in order to get around the blockade, russia now wants to use c roots as an alternative. in the meantime, fears are growing that moscow could try to further escalate. the stand off did of his konstantin anchored is following the developments from lithuania, capital, villainous. earlier we asked him how worried lithuanians are about possible russian aggression on their doorstep. given that invasion of the crane caught many by surprise. yes, no one told me you're going to invade, but also no one thought that this invasion going to go haywire. so i think that we've got to the 20th, it is a completely different game. most of the leadership understands that it is nato territory and spoke for nothing that we have confirmation yet again from joe biden
