The Baltic Assembly in the centenary year of the Baltic States

The Baltic Assembly in the centenary year of the Baltic States

15.03.2019

In 2018, all three Baltic States – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - celebrated the centenary of their founding. For half of this period, from 1940 to 1990, these countries were incorporated against their will into the Soviet Union. In 1990 they democratically proclaimed the restoration of their independence, which was widely internationally recognised in 1991. In these new circumstances, on November 8, 1991, the Baltic Assembly was officially established as the inter-parliamentary cooperation organisation of the Baltic States. It was based on the close co-operation forged between the three Baltic nations’ independence movements in the 1980s.
