The Baltic States celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way

August 23, 2019 is the 80th anniversary of the signing of the Molotov – Ribbentrop Pact paving the way to the World War the II and leading to the painful, 51 years lasting occupation of the three Baltic States.

On August 23, 1989 Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians formed a human chain of 675 kilometers connecting all three capitals of the Baltic States to resist occupation and demand freedom.

Today, on August 23, 2019 we jointly celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way – action, which remains one of the most remarkable examples of peaceful protest in history and symbolizes the unity of three Baltic nations in achieving their goal of regaining independence.
