Lithuanian Defense Ministry will thank the United States for "non-recognition" of the republic's entry into the USSR

54

The Lithuanian Ministry of Defense announces that, together with the command of the American military contingent present in the country, it will hold commemorative events on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the “beginning of the Soviet occupation”. By “Soviet occupation” in the Baltic countries they continue to understand the development of the republics within the Soviet Union.


The official acceptance of the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian SSR into the USSR took place in early August 1940. And on July 21-22 of the same year, the parliaments of the countries adopted declarations on the formation of the aforementioned Soviet republics.

Now the policy of the same Vilnius considers the declarations of the 1940 model as "illegal". The argument is as follows: the parliamentary elections organized in the republic were held under "pressure from the Soviet Union." I wonder if there is such confidence in the "pressure", then under whose pressure the elections in the same Lithuania are being held now? ..



Among the events planned by the departments of the Baltic republics this week are the joint solemn raising of the flags of the USA, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. The orchestra of the Lithuanian Armed Forces will play. This ceremony is reported to be dedicated to the fact that the United States in 1940 did not recognize the declaration on the proclamation of the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian SSR with their entry into the Soviet Union.

Press service of the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania:

Let us celebrate this anniversary with gratitude to our ally - the United States for not recognizing and never recognized the legal occupation of the Baltic countries.

    Another, by the way, petty manifestation of loyal feelings, sir ... And it is not known that they were not worried about Lithuania overseas, but simply tried to "hurt" a geopolitical rival. And Lithuania is just a pawn in the games of the great powers.

      This is not a rewriting of history, but a reminder of objective facts. In 1939, an agreement was signed between Lithuania and the USSR on a military alliance against the aggression of Nazi Germany, in which the USSR pledged not to interfere in the internal affairs of Lithuania. In 1940, the USSR presented Lithuania to Lithuania. an ultimatum demanding a change of political power in the country and not waiting for the deadline for the execution of the ultimatum, the temporary contingent of the Red Army in Lithuania and additionally introduced in those days, in violation of the agreement, parts of the Red Army occupied strategically important objects in Lithuania, the NKVD of the USSR began arresting the state. officials and politicians of Lithuania, according to lists drawn up in advance. All parties in Lithuania, except for the communists, were immediately banned, independent press and agitation, the elections were held as in the USSR in an organized manner and with a song "... in a single impulse for a bloc of non-party and communists ...", at the polling stations in the lists there was only one candidate. Then everything went according to Stalin's ".. the main thing is who counts the votes .." and naturally, the votes for him were 97,9% "For" and then it was all a matter of technology.

        What are these objective facts? Yes, agreements were signed between Lithuania and the USSR. here is an explanation from the USSR .............. a poll on the conclusion of a treaty was put by the Soviet Union, which wanted to protect Lithuania from fascist aggression and ensure the security of the USSR's borders in connection with the deterioration of the international situation after the attack of Nazi Germany on Poland . The bourgeois government of Lithuania pursued an anti-national and hostile policy of the USSR, but under pressure from the working masses it was forced to conclude an agreement. According to the 1939 treaty, both parties recognized that previously concluded agreements remain the basis of their relationship and obligations. In order to consolidate friendship between the USSR and Lithuania, the Soviet government transferred to the latter the city of Vilna and the Vilnius region, occupied by the Soviet Army during the liberation of the western regions of Ukraine and Belarus (see. Art. 1). Thus, the Vilensky conflict was completely resolved. The USSR and Lithuania agreed to render each other all kinds of assistance, including military assistance in the event of an attack on Lithuania or the USSR through the territory of Lithuania and jointly protect the state borders of Lithuania, for which, according to the agreement, Soviet troops were strictly entered into its territory a certain amount and placed in the places exactly specified in the contract. Both parties pledged "... not to enter into any alliances or participate in coalitions directed against one of the Contracting Parties" (Art. 6). The USSR undertook to provide Lithuania with arms and military on favorable terms. materials (see. Art. 3). The conclusion of mutual assistance treaties with Lithuania and other Baltic states ensured the security of the northwestern borders of the USSR. The presence of Soviet troops in Lithuania contributed to the creation of conditions for the peaceful victory of the socialist revolution in Lithuania, depriving the reactionary bourgeoisie of the opportunity to unleash a civil war and get outside help ......... here I am, these explanations suit me. Why should I not believe them? and here is an excerpt from the ultimatum, the full text can be found, there would be a desire ......... In recent months, there have been a number of cases in Lithuania of the abduction by the Lithuanian authorities of Soviet military personnel from Soviet military units located in accordance with the Soviet-Lithuanian Agreement on Mutual Assistance in Lithuania, and their torture in order to reveal the military secrets of the Soviet state. At the same time, it was established that the serviceman Bugaev was not only abducted, but also killed by the Lithuanian police after the Government of the USSR demanded the extradition of the serviceman Bugaev. The two abducted Soviet servicemen, Pisarev and Shmavgonets, managed to escape from the hands of the Lithuanian police who had seized them and used torture against them. Serviceman Shutov, kidnapped in Lithuania, has not yet been found. By such actions with respect to servicemen from Soviet military units located in Lithuania, the Lithuanian authorities are striving to make it impossible for the Soviet military units to stay in Lithuania .......

        To the Lithuanians, the simplest question is where they got to the Jews, who were the main urban population there until 1913
        For some reason the Lithuanians returned from exile, but the Jews did not return from where the Lithuanians had sent them

    They become impudent in proportion to our inaction in the international legal field.
    They took him for this. They switched to a banal stuffing of the topic they needed, connecting all modern media to this, forcing us to constantly make excuses, and this is a fatal loss in the information war. It's time for us, corny,
    in unison with their ravings, to promote their own themes - (Alaska, Lomonosov shelf, not claiming the Northern Sea Route, withdrawal from NATO of all countries bordering Russia, etc.)
    Like - return Alaska to its original owner, who and when it belonged. And in the same place, about the status of the Bering Strait, treacherously signed by Shevardnadze, who does not have the authority to do so, and then we will talk about the "rights" of the Poles, Balts, Ukrainians and Swedes, starting with Karl 12. It's time to start talking hard with them. They were afraid of the harshness of North Korea (Kim U-na), backed down. And we continue
    dance to their tune. We have everything for them to "respect" us, but we are mired in "Gorbachev's verbiage", when they beat him, now you can't stop them with verbiage. We need harsh rhetoric with them, as in the USSR.

      It's simple, Lithuania is an example of a republic that left the Union with gifts from the Russian people - the Vilna region, Memel and the adjacent part of Courland
      And in general, Imperial Russia also contributed to the creation of the Lithuanian national intelligentsia, in contrast to the Polish influence, not to mention the Soviet period, all Budraitis and Banionis
      So Lithuania owes a lot to Russia and she will pay her debts

      Rūta Vanagaitė’s book Mūsiškiai (Ours), about the participation of Lithuanians in the extermination of Jews during the Holocaust, was published in Lithuania. Then about 200 thousand people died, that is 95% of the Jewish population of Lithuania. The book became a bestseller, although it caused a storm of indignation in Lithuania - some accused the author of working for the Kremlin, others suggested that "the work was paid by the Jews."
      The Lithuanians so diligently killed Jews that they were taken to Lithuania for extermination from other countries. Even schoolchildren voluntarily participated in the killings, and the church indifferently watched the Holocaust - even murdered the murderers of sins. In total, about 200 Jews were killed in Lithuania.

      Initially, Jews in Lithuania were killed simply with sticks

      From an interview with Ruta Vanagait:
      “I know that Lithuania did not wait for this book. Therefore, she wrote it. " These are your words. Have you already encountered a negative reaction?
      “Priest Richards Doveyka told me that the doors will close before my nose.” I was faced with a negative reaction from the very beginning - my relatives said that I was betraying my relatives and that I was Pavlik Morozov. Several friends turned their backs on me altogether - they said that Jews paid me, and I betrayed my homeland. I needed a lot of courage. I asked my children, who are 20 and 28 years old, whether I should write such a book. They said they support 120%. But some friends warned me that I would be left without readers who love me for books on caring for the elderly and women. I thought - why should I think about commerce? I see that no one else will write such a book.
      - Why do you think that no one else will write? Are you afraid of this topic?
      - To such an extent they are afraid that I am faced with an absolute panic from government institutions to rural residents. For six months I met only a few people who were not afraid. I even had to meet with historians in a park on a bench ... I cannot quote some historians - they don’t want to, one said that from now on he would not give lectures on this topic - it’s dangerous.

        - Where does this fear come from? Lithuania reconciled with Israel, in 1995, President Algirdas Brazauskas apologized to the Jewish people, despite the fact that he was zealously criticized for this.
        - They reconciled with Israel so that it does not raise this topic. For this, Lithuania will support Israel at the UN. This is politics. Even the ambassador of Israel, having seen Zuroff in Lithuania, told him that why would you come here, you would spoil the mood of people. Even the Jewish community does not raise this topic, neither Israel nor Lithuania raises, and there are practically no eyewitnesses of those events. And there is no money for research. Yes, Brazauskas was convicted. I think he later regretted that he did so. He promised to identify and name the killers, but they did not. In 2012, the Lithuanian Center for the Study of the Genocide of Residents and Resistance compiled a list of 2055 people who could possibly have participated in the genocide. The list has been transferred to the government. Where is he now? I went to the vice chancellor of the government and said that something needs to be done with this list, because it cannot lie for 5 years. They answered me that no matter what we do, everything is not enough for Jews. And this list lies further.
        - How many doors were closed in front of your nose?
        - Most of the people spoke, only did not agree to be photographed and give their names. Others were afraid - they said they would still come and kill. Who will kill? Lithuanians! They know that in most cases Jews were escorted, guarded, or killed by their neighbors' fathers or grandfathers. This is how they betray their neighbors. But they remember very well. I read the exhumation reports - many children with intact skulls - which means they were buried alive. The book contains the testimony of one soldier - the father lay down prone in the pit, covering the child. The military was asked - who was the first to be shot at - the father or the child? He replied: "What are we animals, or what, to shoot a child in front of his father?" Of course, in the father. The child does not understand anything. "

        - The book sounds terribly rhetorical about how many gold teeth were pulled out from the murdered Jews, melted down, and then used to make the teeth of the inhabitants of Joniškielis? This was about the murderer of the Jews, who then worked as a dental technician. Did the Lithuanians share the golden crowns of those killed?
        - Not only in Joniškelis, many where. I remember, in Soviet times, when people were treating their teeth, they asked - will it be your or mine gold? Where did the dental technicians get the gold from? Where did all the gold crowns go? There is an even more interesting point. I inherited from my grandfather and grandmother an antique bed, wardrobe, clock. I read that in all of Lithuania there were about 50 Jewish houses, plus synagogues, shops, hospitals. Where did all this property go? All Lithuania became rich. I read that in Panevezys, things were handed over to the Drama Theater, a nursing home, a female gymnasium, a hospital, and then sold out to residents. What could not be sold was given away for free. When the Jews were killed, in Panevezys there were 000 inhabitants, there were 25 things left after the murder of the Jews - from bed linen to cups. They were handed out for free. This means that each resident received several things for free. My grandmother is from Panevezys, the bed is from Panevezys. Did she buy her? I do not know. Did my mother wear any of those clothes? Everyone in Lithuania who has antiques can wonder where they came from. The killers of the Jews usually did not pay anything, they took what they could, carried to sell or traded for vodka. It was their reward. In the evening they returned home. Some had children — from work they didn’t come empty-handed — they brought them either clothes or something else.

        Mass executions of Jews in the moat ditches of the Coven Fortress

        - When you read the memories of the murderers of the Jews, the conclusion is that the Germans did not force them to kill - they could refuse.
        - First of all, these were volunteers - and the white dressers who went as volunteers. Some claimed that they threatened to be executed for refusal, but there is only one fact - a soldier who refused to kill was shot in Kaunas in the Mickevičius valley. In a special detachment, 8 students of the craft school, 16–17 years old, served. June came, there was nothing to do, they went to work - they were promised the things of the Jews. Summer is over, they left the squad. Is this violence - they themselves came, they themselves left. In Lithuania they say that they forced to kill, they watered. Military Liaonas Stonkus said that if they saw that someone couldn’t stand their nerves, the officers didn’t force them to shoot, they were afraid they wouldn’t turn their weapons against them. And they didn’t drink - they gave after, in the evening, or very little - they were afraid that the commanders would not be shot. We can say that the Jews were killed by young, illiterate and sober Lithuanians.

        - They will attack you for the inconvenient truth and ask how you know what you rely on?
        - In the book I do not rely on any foreign source, only on what is said by the inhabitants of Lithuania and historians. I spent six months in the Special Archive, read cases, their confessions. Who will say that our boys were tortured and only after that they testified - this is nonsense, no one talks about torture. One Jewish killer complained of pain in his shoulder, made an X-ray, found out the cause, prescribed a massage and paraffin baths. Apparently, he shot too much. Secondly, the NKVD workers were consistent, accurate, each story of the murderer of the Jews was confirmed by the testimonies of 15 persons, associates. Every detail matches. They all belittled their guilt. When asked how many times they participated in executions, at first they did not remember, then they remembered some kind of execution, but in reality they participated in 20 or 50. Everyone belittled their guilt because they did not want to sit. After the war, many NKVD were tried for escorting, and 20-30 years later, when it turned out that they shot, they were arrested again ... The Lithuanians did everything so well that they later brought Jews to Austria and France to shoot in Lithuania. In the IX fort, 5000 Jews from Austria and the Czech Republic were shot. They were brought here for vaccination - Jews went into the pits with their sleeves rolled up in anticipation of the vaccination. The Lithuanians worked so well that the battalion of Antanas Impulavičius was taken to Belarus - 15 Jews were killed there. The Germans were very pleased.

        - Where does such diligence come from? Many say - the Lithuanians suffered, the occupation was replaced by the occupation, we are not guilty, we suffered, we were taken to Siberia.
        - Yes, this is true, but no one forced them to shoot people. There were volunteers, in part because of widespread anti-Semitism.
        - So the Lithuanians killed Jews out of hate? However, it seems that until now the Lithuanians coexisted peacefully with the Jews.
        - We had quite a lot of supporters of Voldemaras, nationalists who were influential army officers. Many Jewish killers are aviators, associates of Darius and Girenas. Under Smeton, it was possible to get along well with the Jews, but when the Germans came, Lithuanian nationalists joined them, and everything became very simple. And anti-Semitism - everything came from Berlin, Goebbels’s hand was felt there, Lithuanians spread it. The first newspaper of the interim government of Lithuania, “To Freedom,” wrote, Down with the Jews, their corpses are our way to freedom. They talked about this on the radio, wrote in the newspapers. Two months were enough, then structures were created. Without the approval of the Lithuanian government and without indulging Hitler, this would not have happened - admittedly, but we do not want, we have the streets and schools named after Kazis Skirpa and Juozas Ambraziavicius.

        - Zuroff admitted that he did not realize that at the dawn of independence Lithuania was not able to face the past - even France took 50 years to admit its guilt for the pro-Hitler actions of the Vichy regime.
        “It will take us 90 years.” Soon everyone will die, and my generation of children will be interested, only witnesses will be gone. Therefore, I talked with witnesses while they were alive. Let no one read this book, maybe they will read it in 10 or 15 years. I fulfilled my duty to my homeland, although she did not ask for it. How can you know that in the building where the famous Panevezys Confectionery Company is located, there used to be a yeshiva known all over the world - a religious school. There is no sign. Students and teachers from all over the world came here. - What do you think Lithuania would be like if it had not destroyed its inhabitants? - I think we would have more scientists, excellent doctors. It would be a serious state. But we wanted racial cleanliness and their teeth.
        - You mentioned that relatives have disowned you. Have your relatives participated in the Holocaust?
        - I dont know. Grandfather participated in a commission that compiled a list of 10 Jews, and my aunt's husband was the commander of the white dressers, worked in security structures in Panevezys. I know that the whole Panevezys police, under the influence of the Nazis, participated in this process. I know that not one of them pushed the trigger - otherwise I would not have written, it would have been too hard for me ...

        Today in Lithuania Vanagait is called the “Putinist” even more often than the “Jewess”. And few people think that the only way to defend themselves from propaganda manipulations is to uncover their dark spots themselves, to give credit to the living and the dead, to figure it out, and thus deprive the propagandists of reasons for blackmail. But few speak of this ...
