"We are in the front line, and Russia has made its intentions clear. While we feel NATO's support, we know the front could move forward if the international community fails to stand firm," said the president of the Lithuanian bishops' conference.

"What is not fully understood in the West is that the information and propaganda war which preceded the military action against Ukraine is very much underway here, too. There is a high degree of tension, and everybody here knows how dangerous the situation has become," he said.
