Jacinta was interviewed by Frenchmen Jacques Serre and Ramon Perez in 1979. Below is one of their questions and Jacinta's answer:
Do you recall anything about a great tribulation, communism or Russia?
Yes, it was an invasion, well, something which seemed to me like an invasion;
something that was a great evil in which communism played a great part, but I no longer remember which countries or what region was stricken. The Blessed Virgin insisted on telling us to pray (that it be averted). These difficult events will take place before the
because the Warning itself will take place when the situation will be at its worst.
