The Inimitable Baltic Way – a chain of 2 million people, 670 km long, connected Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia 30 years ago.
It was a peaceful protest against the partition of Europe and the occupation of the Baltic States, against a crime committed in 1939 by the leadership of Soviet USSR and Nazi Germany, who signed a secret protocol known as the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. According to the pact and its secret protocols, USSR and Germany divided Europe into spheres of influence: Latvia, Estonia, Finland, eastern Poland and Bessarabia were annexed to the USSR, whereas Germany received Lithuania and western Poland.
The Baltic Way proved that even after half a century of lies truth can be revived and win out. The demonstrators honored the victims of the conspiracy, perished in the war and killed in Nazi and Communist concentration camps.
