The “singing revolution” in Lithuania 1988-1991: how it was


We were shouted: "Ivan - go home!"In Lithuania, passions continue to seethe about the plot from the Russian TV program “Man and Law”, which opened the veil of lies surrounding the tragic events that occurred in Vilnius in January 1991. The topic of the information war, which the Kremlin propagandists allegedly have been waging against the republic for a number of years, has been largely rewritten. It is alleged that within the framework of this “war” a “false story” about the events of January 13 was shown.

A special indignation of the Lithuanian "counter-propagandists" in the TV program was reminded by the former secretary of the Central Committee of the Lithuanian Communist Party, Algimantas Naujunas, about the call "Fly the bellies of pregnant officers' wives so as not to give birth to invaders!" That sounded at rallies in Lithuania. Their main argument is that the "singing revolution" in Lithuania 1988-1991 was supposedly extremely democratic and tolerant to all people living in its territory. But this is a myth.

Myths and truths

In this regard, I will try to refresh the memory of Lithuanian opponents and remind them of the inter-ethnic situation in Lithuania after the XIUMX year in June of the Movement in support of perestroika, the so-called “Sajūdis”. Fortunately, I have enough documentary sources for this.

At the beginning of its existence, “Sajudis” proclaimed noble and lofty goals. But after Vitautas Landsbergis came to the leadership of the movement, in September 1988, with the blessing of the KGB of the Lithuanian SSR and the Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Lithuania (the well-known Lithuanian writer Vytautas Petkavičius was the leader of Süudis for the first three months) roll.

It was not by chance.

In order for the little-known and not charismatic musicologist Landsbergis to become the leader of the nation, it was necessary to create enemies. And not only external, but also internal, living near the Lithuanians.

The confrontation with these enemies was supposed to rally the Lithuanian nation around the new leader.

After all, even the ancient philosopher Plato warned that "most of the tyrants came out of demagogues who gained confidence by slandering noblemen ... These demagogues constantly support society’s readiness for war so that people would need leaders."

Accordingly, the new leadership of “Sajudis” began to “zombie” the inhabitants of the republic with false reports. The first "trial ball" was thrown by the associate of Landsbergis, the editor of the newspaper "Gimtasis kraštas" ("Native Land"), Algimantas Čekuolis. In the summer of 1988, his newspaper published the text of a leaflet calling for “killing Lithuanians”, allegedly written by Russian extremists. The reaction of the Lithuanians to such a leaflet was predictable. However, it soon became clear that the leaflet was rigged by the sajudists themselves. But Cekuolis, a formerly famous Soviet internationalist internationalist and part-time KGB officer, pretended that this did not concern him ...

12 August 1988, Cekuolis, at a meeting with CPSU Central Committee Secretary Alexander Yakovlev, stated that the day before the Russian guys had cut the Lithuanian youth only because he wore the “Sajudis” badge. Already after Yakovlev's departure, it turned out that this was another lie. The youth was wounded by his Lithuanian friends. (“Soviet Lithuania”, 13.08.89).

But the voiced information has already been replicated in the Lithuanian media, contributed to the incitement of ethnic hatred, awakened the desire to "take revenge on the Russians."

Official language

The Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Lithuanian SSR “On the Use of the State Language in the Lithuanian SSR” played a decisive role in the interethnic split in Lithuania. The international practice of introducing the state language indicates that this should take into account the structure of the population, the place of compact residence of foreign-speaking citizens, the availability of material, scientific and methodological basis. The real timing of the transition to the state language is extremely important in this process.

However, the leadership of Sayudis tried to make the Lithuanian language its tool in the split of the Lithuanians and foreigners of the republic. In many respects this was due to the fact that Landsbergis, trying to present himself as a “strong personality,” everywhere demonstrated categorical and uncompromising attitude towards the protection of Lithuanian.

In January 1989, he and his deputy. V. Chepaytis sent a letter to the Presidium of the Armed Forces of the Lithuanian SSR. In it, referring to the social and political authority of “Sajudis”, and, allegedly defending the Lithuanian language, they ultimately demanded - “In the Decree on the state language there should not be special exceptions in favor of another language” (See the Sajudis newspaper Revival No.1, 06.01.1989).

As a result, on January 25, 1989 was adopted a Decree on the state language with unreasonably tight deadlines for switching to it. For Vilnius and the city of Snechkus, where the Russian-speaking population made up half or more of the population, as well as for the residents of Vilnius and Shalchininka districts, whose population on 80% consisted of Poles, these were simply unrealistic demands.

In response, the socialist movement “Vienybe - Unity - Jednos” 12 in February 1989 of the year held a hundred-thousand rally of foreign-language speakers in Vilnius. And although the protesters mostly criticized the unrealistic terms of the introduction of the state language, Lithuanian television built a plot about the rally in such a way that the impression was created - foreign speakers spoke out against the Lithuanian language as such.

The rally at the Palace of Sport was presented as a gathering of Russian-speaking extremists who do not want to know the Lithuanian language, do not respect Lithuanian culture and the Lithuanians themselves.
Since then, in Lithuania, all those who opposed the ultimatum of secession from the USSR have been called "Oneness".

For any Lithuanian, the “oneness” has come to mean - this is the enemy. So a wedge was driven in between Lithuanians, on the one hand, and Russians, Poles, Lithuanians of Belarus, on the other.

After 7 months, 13 August 1989, the chairman of the national affairs committee of the Sajudis A. Gorodeckis was forced to admit that: “The law on the use of the Lithuanian language ... doesn’t pay enough attention to the actual situation in different regions of Lithuania. For Snechkus, for example, it was possible to increase the time limit for mastering the language ... The incarnation of the law is difficult ... But the Government is not to blame for this "Sajudis".

The heirs of “Sajudis” still behave in this way in Lithuania. First, they make mistakes, and then they are guilty of everything except themselves.

Russian - "parasites"

By the autumn of 1988, the Saаюudis fully took control of the social and political situation in the republic. Already 6 of October of that year was restored the national symbols of the times of the bourgeois republic: the tricolor flag, the coat of arms of Vytis and the pillars of the Gediminas. October 9 on the Gediminas Tower was raised a new national flag.

22-23 October 1988 of the year “Sajudis” held a founding congress. The 1122 delegate and 3,5 thousands of guests arrived. Also invited was the entire party active in the republic. The congress was covered by 400 journalists, of whom 103 was represented by world news agencies and the largest foreign publications of 17.

Gorbachev conveyed to the Congress "sincere greetings and wishes." However, the atmosphere at the congress was clearly anti-Russian and anti-Soviet in nature.

The slogans of some of the speakers, “Russian - occupiers” and “Remove the occupying army from Lithuania,” were greeted by applause and chanting “Lie-tu-va!”. Moscow did not answer.

After that, the majority of the mass media in the republic took anti-Soviet and anti-Russian positions. I will give just a few examples. Even the intellectual weekly of the Lithuanian Writers' Union Literatura ir menas (Literature and Art) was engaged in replicating evil caricatures of Russians. 11 February 1989, a cartoon was published in it, which depicts two groups of "rogues" with huge spoons and a bottle of vodka, looking greedily at the map of Lithuania. One of them in Russian proclaims "Everything is common! Enough for everyone! ” The hint is clear.

Soon the next caricature appeared. A huge fellow tears to shreds the textbook of the Lithuanian language, which he was given by a little Lithuanian girl. And at the side of some "uncle" says to the girl: "Do not be angry little brother!"

22 April 1989, after the events in Tbilisi, "Literatura ir menas" publishes a new cartoon. A Soviet soldier offers a Lithuanian girl and her father a sapper shovel for planting a tree. The inscription is in Lithuanian letters, but in Russian: "I can lend a spatula ...". Etc.

As for the printed editions of “Sajudis”, they were not at all shy about expressions. 12 of May 1989 of the “Sayudis News” (No. 85), the press organ of the Sayudis Seimas Council, published the poem “Pluralism of“ Brotherhood ”Opinions.” These were 6 stanzas of an almost commonplace scolding of Russians.

In this “work”, Russians were called “roach kings” fattened on Lithuanian loaves, “parasites and pork snouts”, “stupid slaves of their second end, unscrupulous, with bloody faces and lips of lips”. The poem was meaningfully signed by the "Conscience of the People." But the leadership of Sayudis and the political leadership of the republic did not seem to notice this offensive publication.

In May 1989, the magazine Pergale (“Victory”, No. 5, 6) published a “metaphysical diary” of the main ideologue of “Sajudis” Romualdas Ozolas. He was intriguingly called "Concepts". In the diary, the author characterized Russian culture and art as “horror, horror”.

Writer Julian Semenov, who wrote about Soviet intelligence, was awarded the epithet "disgusting".

As a national trait of Russian character, Ozolas noted: “stupidity, laziness, myopia, indifference ... Russian work was worse than death ... Russian always loved living beyond their means ... Russian has always been a fan of power: his fist has always been the best argument ".

At this point, Lithuania’s television was already under the full control of Sayudis. Its representatives arbitrarily interpreted historical events and the position of Moscow, which exacerbated the political and interethnic confrontation in the republic. Opinion that contradicts Landsbergist opinion was not allowed on Lithuanian TV.

It was in this way that the nationalistic psychosis in Lithuania was brought to such a state that in July 1989 of the year, at a rally of sayudists in Kaunas, there was a call for reprisals against pregnant wives of officers. There were also several leaflets on this topic. The case received unpleasant publicity. Therefore, on the republican radio (but only in the Lithuanian language), an attempt was made to explain the “tactlessness” allowed by Kaunas sayudists.

As a result, a gangster appeal, qualified as “tactlessness,” began to sound at other meetings. These appeals to foreign speakers in Lithuania were perceived literally. Why? In 1989, there were still quite a few who remembered the massacre of Lithuanian nationalists over the families of Soviet soldiers and Jews in June 1941.

I already wrote in the "Centuries" on this topic. However, let me remind you once again that during the war the Lithuanian nationalists and part-time Nazi collaborators managed to destroy thousands of Soviet activists and prisoners of war, as well as almost the entire Jewish population of the republic.

Also recall that in Soviet Lithuania, the issue of the participation of Lithuanians in massacres of Jews was ignored. In 1957, I experienced a real shock when, for the first time marked the anniversary of the mass execution of Jews in Reshe forest near Utena, the victims of this atrocity who managed to survive called the real culprits - Lithuanian nationalists.

Prior to this, the chairman of the district executive committee, who spoke at the rally, claimed that the Nazi invaders were responsible for the execution of the Jews. This version was then generally accepted. At home, in the courtyard, the older neighbors of the children, who remembered the German occupation, told how the nationalists in columns drove the Jews to be shot in the forest of Reshe. They even showed which of the "executioners" where he lived.

In May, the Russian-speaking 1989 was shocked by the message that appeared in the newspaper "Kauno aidas". It said that a decision was made to create "detachments of the regional defense" (krašto saugos būrius). Meanwhile, many people remembered that at the beginning of 1941, at the direction of the leadership of the pro-fascist “S Сjūdis” (predecessor of the perestroika “Sаюjūdis”), called the “Front of Lithuanian activists” (Lietuvių aktyvistų frontas), underground groups of the “protection of national labor” began to be created in Lithuania (tautino darbo apsaugą).

It was they who in June 1941 began the massacre of families of Soviet officers and Jews in Lithuania.

Subsequently, on their base, the German occupation authorities organized the Lithuanian police battalions, which became famous for the cruel massacres of civilians not only in Lithuania, but in Belarus and the Pskov region.

Therefore, the message about the creation of "guard detachments" and calls for reprisals, which were heard at rallies of the Syuidists, caused an extremely painful reaction among the majority of the Russian-speaking population of the republic. In this regard, the Socialist Federation of Workers of Lithuania (SFTL) published the photo album “Lithuania in the Lens” with 46 pictures of provocative and nationalist posters that irrefutably proved the fact of inciting ethnic hatred.

The photo album was sent to Moscow. However, measures to curb the illegal activities of Sajudis were never taken. The calls “Ivan - home!”, The vile caricatures, rhymes, articles, TV and radio programs were not condemned either by the Lithuanian authorities or by the representatives of “Sajūdis”.

Show prohibited

It is necessary to tell about how Soviet journalists had to work in Lithuania if they wanted to show the real picture of what was happening in the republic. 25 August 1989 Pravda newspaper published an article by G. Ovcharenko “What is tomorrow?” It described how TASS photo correspondent Dmitry Sokolov went to his colleagues at the Lithuanian telegraph agency Elta to show the captured films. When it turned out that the photographs captured undesirable moments for sayudists, they were immediately flashed.

The article also described the difficult fate of a Russian woman met by Moscow correspondents in Gediminas Square in Vilnius. She complained that "Russians survive from Lithuania with all sorts of threats." Her garden country house and orchard were destroyed by some thugs. The woman found an option to exchange an apartment in Russia, but she was not allowed to change. They declared - “change only with Lithuanians”.

In this regard, I recall another fact. In the autumn of 1990, I ran from the Communist Party of Lithuania on the CPSU platform as a candidate for deputy of the Supreme Council of Lithuania. After one of the meetings with voters, two elderly women approached me and stretched a modest bouquet. They introduced themselves. It turned out that both daughters of Russian officers who had fled to revolution in 1918 year to Vilnius. According to them, they treated the communists all their lives negatively. But the interethnic situation in the declaring independence of Lithuania reminded them of the terrible first months of the 1941 war of the year. As a result, they reconsidered their attitude towards the Lithuanian communists who remained in the CPSU, since it was the only political force in the republic that declared its main goal to protect national, political, economic and social equality.

I remembered them all my life: “Son, you are the last hope for us that the Russians will live normally in Lithuania. Don't let us down. ” Unfortunately, the names and surnames of these Russian women remained in the records that the Lithuanian prosecutors seized from me during a search in the Vilnius apartment in December 1991 of the year.

The terrible massacres perpetrated by Lithuanian nationalists in 1941 and after the war largely determined the attitude of the foreign-speaking population of Lithuania to the proclamation of independence of the republic. Some were waiting for this independence, which promised them "the sky in diamonds", while others recalled the terrible shooting moats with the earth breathing above them ...

Let me remind you that it was during this period that bloody nationalist pogroms with numerous victims occurred in the Union in Sumgait (February 1989) and in Baku (January 1990). Foreign language Vilnius believed that in Lithuania, the case goes to the same outcome.

These fears and the forced “Lithuanianization” of the republic led to an increase in interethnic confrontation and the desire of the Russian-speaking population to leave Lithuania. By December 1990, the number of people willing to leave had reached 40 thousand.

Let me remind you of some Russian politicians who, by their behavior, actually supported the Russophobic moods of the Lithuanian authorities.

15 August 1990, the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR, Ivan Silaev, paid an official visit to Lithuania. Despite all the attempts of representatives of Russian-speaking organizations to meet with Silaev, he never condescended to this. Representatives of SFTL managed to hand over to Silaev a “Petition for Granting Political Asylum” on behalf of ten thousand Russian families living in Lithuania, only by blocking the path of the motorcade of cars in which the Russian delegation was traveling. Today, Silaev, as you know, is positioning himself a patriot of Russia.

But not only Silaev distinguished himself in his support of Lithuanian Russophobes.

Immediately after the declaration of independence by Lithuania, 73, a Democratic deputy from the Moscow Council, sent a welcome letter to the Landsbergist Supreme Council. This caused an uproar in the Russian-speaking environment.

1260 residents of the city of Klaipeda sent a letter to the Moscow City Council, in which they offered Moscow deputies, enthusiastic supporters of Landsbergis policy, to exchange housing. In addition, a similar letter to the Moscow City Council was sent to 73 by an employee of the Vilnius factory of radio measuring devices. But already with their addresses and specific offers to exchange apartments.

Of course, there was no response from the Moscow Council to either the first or the second letter. In this regard, I appeal to readers. Take a look around, perhaps today with you are those who supported the Lithuanian nationalists in 1990, and today they pretend to be a patriot of Russia.

Polish autonomists

Today, in Lithuania, the claim is being imposed that in the 1980s the republic was marching towards independence in the “united order”. She was allegedly opposed by only a miserable handful of former partocrats who were trying to regain their lost power and the Russians, who did not want to learn the Lithuanian language.

In fact, this is a myth that was recently dispelled by one of the associates of Landsbergis, the former head of defense of the building of the Supreme Council of Lithuania, Jonas Gyachas. In January 2013 of the year he said in an interview with the correspondent of DELFI.lt: “It’s good if half a million people joined hands in Lithuania (i.e., they firmly supported independence. - V. Sh.), But about one and a half million waited for . And another half a million, if they were not categorically opposed, it is very opposed. ” (See “Seimo rūmų gynimo organizatorius: anuomet tauta no velnio nebuvo vieninga”, “DELFI.lt” 13.01.2013).

Gyachas gave a really realistic assessment of the socio-political situation that had developed by January 1991. In this regard, a few words about 240 thousands of Poles in Lithuania, most of whom did not accept the ultimatum of independence. Although, it would seem, they should have supported the exit of Lithuania from the USSR. After all, the Poles have lived on the territory of the republic for more than one hundred years and are its indigenous inhabitants.

But under Landsbergis, the Poles felt extremely uncomfortable. The practice of introducing the main provisions of the Decree "On the use of the state language in the Lithuanian SSR" in 1989 and the subsequent decisions of the Supreme Council of Lithuania reminded them of the "Lithuanianization" of the Vilnius Territory after its transfer to Lithuania in 1939.

This is what American journalist Anna Louise Strong wrote in her book “The New Path of Lithuania” on this subject:

“Having received Vilnius, the Smeton government revived Lithuanian nationalism in the city, as extreme and despotic as Polish. No one could receive civil rights, as well as the right to work, if he could not prove that he lived in Vilnius before the Poles captured him in 1920.

Bureaucracy prevailed everywhere, so many documents were required that out of 250 thousands of people living in the city, only 30 thousands were able to get civil rights. Citizenship could be bought for a bribe, for which many Jewish families did not have money. The employees of Smetona spoke with visitors only in Lithuanian, which the majority of the population of Vilnius did not speak. ” (New Lithuanian path. M .; Politizdat, 1990. P. 34).

As early as July 1989, Poles living in the Vilnius and Shalchininko districts of the republic raised the question of Polish autonomy. And the 6 of September of the same year, the session of the Shalchininki District Council of People’s Deputies declared the area a Polish national-territorial district. Subsequently, they were supported by the deputies of the Vilnius district.

In September, 1990, the Council of People’s Deputies of the Shalchininka region decided to establish the Polish Autonomous Region within Lithuania. It was a Polish protest against the ethnocratic policy of the Lithuanian authorities.

Soviet invaders

By July 1990, the dilettantism and excessive politicization of the Supreme Council, headed by Landsbergis, became apparent even to supporters of independence. Then 20 respected intellectuals of Lithuania made a “Appeal” in which they condemned the policy of the Supreme Council and proposed “electing the Revival Seimas”. ("Republic", 31.07.1990).

In response, Landsbergis and his entourage organized a real persecution against the signatories of the “Appeal”, presenting them as enemies of Lithuanian independence. This led to the fact that Sajudis was finally abandoned by intellectuals, who in October 1990 created an alternative to Sajudis - the Forum of the Future of Lithuania.

Trying to restore the lost positions, the Landsbergists took up the problem of protecting “Lithuanian” in the republic. As a result, in the fall of 1990, a campaign began to demolish Soviet monuments, and signs with Russian names suddenly disappeared from the streets of Lithuanian cities and districts and from all institutions. This again increased inter-ethnic tensions.

At the same time, the Landsbergists continued to instill in the population of the republic — Moscow was to blame for everything and the victims in their opposition to it are inevitable. False messages were regularly thrown in to reinforce these allegations. I will remind only one thing.

In September, Central Television of the USSR provided 1990 to the prosecutor of Lithuania (independent) Arturas Paulauskas for television broadcasting. He voiced the "fact of crying lawlessness" that the Soviet military allegedly committed. According to the prosecutor, in Kaunas, they broke into one of the apartments. The head of the family, separated from his wife and children, was taken to the front garden and shot!

However, when they began to understand, it turned out the following. A Lithuanian youth who had deserted from the Soviet Army, found shelter in Kaunas for a woman who kept considerable values ​​at home. Within a few days, the young man managed to identify the caches in the apartment and cleaned out his “favorite” on 10 thousand rubles. (the cost of two "Zhiguli"). The woman said to the police. After the arrest of the thief, it turned out that he was also a deserter. Accordingly, he was handed over to the Soviet military authorities.

The deserter was taken for examination to the Kaunas military hospital. On the way back he tried to run. The deserter did not stop at the warning shot. And the next one was fatal. The fact of the murder took place. But as the prosecutor of the republic presented it to the Soviet television viewers!

Attempts to achieve the refutation of this TV program on the USSR Central Television proved unhelpful. This is how Soviet television worked. At that time, many allied publications were asking for a stance. But this is a separate issue.

The plot of the "shooting in Kaunas" did its job. The attitude of many Lithuanians towards the Soviet servicemen and their family members became simply hostile. The facts of refusal to families of military personnel in kindergartens, in obtaining a “buyer's business card”, without which a number of goods in stores were not released, acquired a mass character in Lithuania.

In this regard, of interest is the official report of the USSR People’s Deputies V. Azarov and G. Kryuchkov to President M. Gorbachev from October 25 of the 1990 year. Deputies wrote. “Familiarization with the situation on the spot ... confirms that the situation in Lithuania remains difficult and explosive. There is ample evidence that the legal rights of citizens are grossly violated in Lithuania, and the lives and safety of many people are at risk.

... More than 20 of thousands of families officially announced their decision to leave Lithuania if it left the USSR, since they are afraid of becoming hostages and victims of the tyranny of the fascist dictatorship ...

Many are intimidated, experiencing a sense of doom, apathy, fear, for anyone who disagrees with the position of the Saudi leadership is persecuted and morally terrorized.

... We were told about the numerous facts of insults to officers and soldiers, who are called not only as "invaders", persecution of their families, about cases when the buses were called upon to take the children of the military as hostages.

... This is typical of a statement by the commander of one of the regiments, which was supported by all those present at the meeting in the Vilnius garrison. "Weapon in our hands, do not bring us with your criminal inaction to the need to protect yourself and our families with these weapons. ” This was discussed even more sharply at a meeting with servicemen and their family members in the Klaipeda garrison ... ”

Social psychosis

In the autumn of 1990, the situation in Lithuania was aggravated by the decision of the Allied authorities to conduct a “planned mobilization” of Lithuanian youths to the Soviet Army. For this, an additional contingent of paratroopers was sent to the republic. Landsbergists took full advantage of this to exacerbate the situation.

November 9 The Lithuanian Freedom League and Young Lithuania organizations controlled by Landsbergis held a rally near the Supreme Soviet building under the slogan "Let the land burn under the feet of the invaders!" On November 1990, Deputy Prime Minister R. Ozolas, in an interview with the newspaper Gimtasis kraštas (Native Land), stated the need for an armed struggle against the USSR.

In December, the previously mentioned provocateur A. Čekuolis published an article entitled “By force and intelligence!” (“Gimtasiskraštas”, 6 — 12 December 1990). In it, the Lithuanians were called upon to give armed resistance to the USSR.

December 15 The 1990 of the Year at the Founding Congress of the Association of Universal Human Rights requested that all those who arrived in Lithuania after the 1940 year be declared colonialists and occupiers.

As a result, the newspaper Respublika, in an editorial entitled “In view of the ruins” of January 6, 1991, described the situation in the republic as a “state of social psychosis”. Therefore, in January 1991, in Moscow, it was decided to stop provocative television and radio programs in Lithuania.

Another thing is that to solve this problem it was not necessary to send “Alpha” and Tanks. It was enough to prosecute those responsible for inciting ethnic hatred in the republic.

This allowed the USSR Law "On Strengthening Responsibility for Offenses against the National Equality of Citizens and the Forced Destruction of the Unity of the Territory of the USSR" which operated from April 2 on April 1990.

19 August events 1991 showed: in order for Landsbergists to back down, one statement from the Emergency Committee was enough. Deputies of the Lithuanian Armed Forces disappeared, and representatives of the Lithuanian security forces immediately removed their national insignia.

I was constantly called by former “comrades-in-arms” of the Lithuanian Communist Party and asked if their arrests were planned. That is, to restore constitutional order in Lithuania, the Kremlin was sufficiently realistic to demonstrate firmness.

But Gorbachev needed a failed provocation that would inflict a final blow on the Soviet Army and the KGB of the USSR, as well as on the supporters of the unity of the USSR in Lithuania. What happened in Vilnius on the night of January 13 1991.

Poisonous shoots

Unfortunately, the seeds of national enmity, sown by "Sajudis" in Lithuania, give poisonous seedlings so far. This is evidenced by the following facts. 11 March 2008, on the anniversary of the proclamation of independence of Lithuania, a column of skin-headed young men marched along the central avenue of Vilnius. They chanted the slogans “One and a half, two and a half, beautiful Lithuania without a Russian!”, “Take the stick and kill the children!”. In Lithuanian, they sounded in rhyme, like counting.

The Vilnius court acquitted the young Lithuanian neo-Nazis who were marching, failing to discern in their actions inciting ethnic hatred. Moreover, a year later the city authorities again allowed them to march along the central street of the capital.

This attitude of the authorities apparently prompted the Lithuanian rock band Dictatorship in June 2011 to voice a song called the “Shalchininka District”. The song said that “a holy war is coming”, during which “the Poles will be hanged, the slaughtered Russians will wallow under the fence, the Jews will burn in the furnace and only real Lithuanians will remain alive”.

Interesting is the reaction of the Lithuanian establishment to this song. She was regarded as a work of "humorous nature" (?!) Naturally, the group "Dictatorship" is alive and well today. In August 2013 of the year in one of the districts of Lithuania, young Lithuanian nationalists, at the songs of the same “Dictatorship”, staged at their rally a public burning of portraits of Lithuanian politicians and public figures whom they did not like. So far, only portraits.

Swede Vladislav Nikolaevich. In 1990-1991 - Second Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Lithuania, member of the Central Committee of the CPSU, chairman of the Citizens Committee of the Lithuanian SSR, deputy of the Supreme Council of Lithuania.

            You probably don’t know about the Urals: In Yekaterinburg - it’s full of Baltic products, in particular canned food (not only sprats, 7-8 items, for example, in the “Okay!” Store, about 8 types of cheese - the Auchan store and etc. Moreover, it is VERY NOT TASTY (apparently they have double standards) and VERY EXPENSIVE.

            For the Urals and Siberia, dairy products from Lithuania are obviously not relevant. I have never met on sale. Is there anything else?

            Only medium-sized Latvian perfumes and cosmetics from the Dzintars company occasionally get to the Urals and Siberia from Pribludia, have not seen anything more for 15 years.
            There are enough dairy products in Siberia and the Urals.

            And what can they still do when, after their grievous revolution, they destroyed everything that was built during the years of their stay in the Union, they destroyed, for the sake of Europeans, they say Europe will build more modern for us again, as the Union used to build for free, at the expense of the Urals and Siberia. Only here they lost their fortune, Europe did not begin to build anything, but donated loans, they say build yourself, which were stolen right there. Soon they will have to pay the bills for the loans taken. The bad thing is that the transport arteries to Kaliningrad and to port-terminals go through Lithuania, for which they are tearing a lot of currency from us. Now, if they blocked these arteries without disrupting the supply of Kaliningrad, then all this Lithuania would have bent for a long time.

          So they got freedom from the Union and now live free, but not from the EU, which they will always have to, for the loans taken. Their descendants will also pay their own ancestors. But they don’t owe us anything, our smart rulers, such as humpbacked and EBN, have forgiven everything.

      Is it only Gorbachev’s business? In the Baltic states, fascism against Russians is cultivated at the state level, and this did not begin yesterday. But you can solve everything quite quickly - an absolute ban on the import of Baltic goods into the Russian Federation (both direct and indirect, from third countries) and a complete cessation of energy supply (gas, gasoline, electricity). All. No Baltic states. One thing scares, while non-citizens will suffer. I think this stops from such measures.

      The author, that you do not write about all kinds of Churkistan, where the Russians are really oppressed, apartments are taken, they are driven out into the street. At the same time, Putin constantly licks with their leaders.
      There is nothing wrong with nationalism. Nationalism is not fascism. What is wrong with the requirement to learn the Lithuanian language. You are not annoyed when visitors from Asia in Russian cities mutter in their own language, distort Russian words ...
      I understand that if you are a "talerast" and love the nationalities, then the Lithuanian nationalists are your enemies. But if you are a Russian nationalist, then you must learn to respect the national feelings of other peoples, which they express on their territory.

Another thing is to spread rot on the representatives of the nation, which has been developing your country for 70 years. Did the Tajiks develop the USSR? Talk about Russians in the Baltic? Does age allow you to compare the level (at least consumer) of life in the Baltic republics and in the RSFSR? No one on this resource can blame me for intolerance and incorrectness. But I allow myself to suggest - can you shut up?

          Probably, many remember the earthquake of 1966, after which the whole country rebuilt Tashkent. On many houses, even the names of the cities remained. However, even then there was a conflict. A distraught crowd of countless Uzbeks went to a rally at the central Pakhtakor stadium demanding Russian builders get out of Uzbekistan. The reason for their indignation was the fact that builders will be able to stay in Tashkent and get 20% of housing. It was in 1968.

          What privileges the Uzbeks did not have compared to the Russians, you will not list in all. In 99% of cases, an Uzbek was appointed the head, and a Russian was appointed deputy: this is so that the work does not get up. In 99% of conflicts, we Russians were told that we should understand the national feelings of the Uzbeks, put up with distortions in their customs, which in one way or another violated our rights

      I do not buy Baltic sprats for a long time. I stopped buying at all because of patriotic feelings. When in Russia there was no information about the behavior of the Balts, they themselves became obsolete. In the cans from under the sprat there was a stinking fish dirf, some kind of mishmash from the garbage of rotten fish. This is their type: Eat Russian Vanya.
      By the way, friends share information that even now the quality of these sprats is lower than average and compared to the Soviet period, full d.r.r.m.s. So the Balts cannot even do sprats without the leadership of Russian Vania.

      The Baltic states do not stick, it cannot have independent decisions by definition. She, as in the past, was appointed a sanitary cordon from Russia and a springboard for the threat (aggression) of Russia.

    The opening ceremony of the KHL regular season match in Riga Dynamo - Ugra was unforgettable for many fans.

    At one point, the “dancing” flags of Latvia took shape on ice in a pattern in which many of those present recognized the fascist swastika.

    The incident occurred on November 17 in the arena where Dynamo Riga performs. According to local media, the organizers of the show staged a celebration in honor of the 95th anniversary of the Republic of Latvia.

    As, for example, the local edition of Focus points out, the swastika was deployed by members of the dance groups of the National Armed Forces "Bramaņi" and "Dižbramaņi".

    The director of the dance is the famous local choreographer Taiga Ludborga, and the work of Yuris Kulakov's "Four Elements" formed the basis of her production.

    Note that representatives of the Latvian club Dynamo (Riga), as well as the KHL, have not yet made any comments. The meeting ended in victory for the Riga club with a score of 4: 3 in overtime.

    I believe that ..... complete .... Where is the KHL, the Foreign Ministry, the OSCE, the UN, a bunch of Jewish organizations, etc. ????

    for all the savagery of Lithuanian nationalism, it is a consequence of the Soviet occupation. no one ever feels warm feelings after this.
    the fact that we do not consider ourselves occupiers does not in any way cancel the fact of occupation. on the other hand, there were times like this, not the USSR, so Germany, it would have been impossible for the Lithuanians to sit out in independence in any way.

      Another couch expert. Did you live in Lithuania? I lived there from 3 months to 15 years. Why from three months? Yes, because. that, by a strange coincidence, the boys born in the families of Soviet military personnel in that city for some reason did not live longer than six months and my mother left to give birth to Russia to me. And the neighbor born there baby lived for 4 months. Here is a struggle against the "Soviet occupation". Only then, in 1947, the MGB dealt with these "bright fighters for independence." The ends led into the forest.

      What are you talking about! The Union poured not a little money into the Baltic states, built everything there to live well, while infringing on us, the Russian people. When traveling from Lithuania on a demobilization, it was clear from the window of the train car that all Lithuanians lived in stone houses with garages and gardens, while all the streets were asphalted, and houses with a metal or stone fence. When you call in to Russia, you can immediately see the wooden rickety houses with wooden hedges. It was in the 70s - 80s.

    The non-randomness, coordination and management of processes from the outside is indicated by the fact that in all three republics everything started at the same time, it happened synchronously and everything was exactly the same.

    THANKS to the author for reminding us, and it is USEFUL for the younger generation to know the truth about the culprits and those who encouraged it.

    As a national trait of Russian character, Ozolas noted: “stupidity, laziness, myopia, indifference ... Russian work was worse than death ... Russian always loved living beyond their means ... Russian has always been a fan of power: his fist has always been the best argument ".

    I’m wondering, after studying genetic research (http://haplogroup.narod.ru/genetics_components.html) this citizen ozals will go into a long-term binge or immediately open his veins? After all, there are fewer differences between Russians and Lithuanians than between Russians and the same Bulgarians or Serbs. Gentika is not lying, it turns out the Lithuanians - the Slavs.

    There is power, and there is a population, and naturally there are more levers directed at Russia in power. And for the actions of the authorities, as a rule, the people suffer. And, this suffering is not always visible from the side. For example, Ukraine, where history and family ties are much closer to Russia. And what do we hear from relatives? I will not quote, we hear every day. Is this your brother, relative, friend, mother, father, screaming at Russia? That's just the point, with ignorance and insults to our homeland, the authorities should be held accountable, on the one hand, on this side. And we are the population, we are obliged to put pressure on the government and ask only from it, and not from the people, crushed by taxes, domestic problems and job search.
