The nation has responded to this recent threat with force, sending extra troops to its border with Belarus, despite no recent reports of Belarusian officials using this border to divert migrants across.
Lithuania has also said it is boosting security at its detention centres that house those crossing into the country illegally.
Interior Minister, Agnė Bilotaitė, responded to the threat on November 8 by saying she will propose a state of emergency for the border area.
This requires government approval but Lithuania’s strong responses to migrant crises in the past means it’s likely she will get it.
