Senior Dispatcher of Lithuanian Radio and TV

I arrived at work on January 12th at 7:30 p.m., and I worked in the admissions bureau until 2:40 a.m., when I was thrown out of the office by officers.

While I was on duty, no delegations came in to negotiate with the governing bodies of the Radio and TV. At 2 o'clock in the morning on January 13th, when the arriving tanks began to shoot, I heard the breaking of glass doors, vulgar cursing in Russian, and threats that everyone would be shot. Aiming their tommy guns, the officers broke into the radio and television rooms. The militiamen on duty were forced out with the butts of tommy guns. The militiamen didn't use weapons.
