On December 25, 1981, the Catholic Committee for the Defense of Believers' Rights wrote Document No. 50 to Secretary General Leonid Brezhnev regarding the crude campaign against believing youth in Lithuania, which Soviet officials launched in 1981. The document refers to the mistreatment of a group of young people in Molėtai, the arrest of Father Ričardas Černiauskas, the detention in Šlavantai of young people from Kybartai, the forced entrance by the militia and detention of young people in Vilkaviškis, the forced entrance in Kapsukas (formerly Marijampolė) into the apartment of (Miss) Kuncevičiūtė.
"Although considerable time has elapsed since these events, the terrorization of believing young people still continues: they are interrogated, threatened and told that such meetings amount to activity against the Soviet government. . . With the adoption of the new Constitution of the USSR and the declaration that we are striding into a period of mature socialism, is it still necessary to employ such inhuman and disgraceful methods to fight against believing young people?" asks the document.
