Remembering the Baltic way…

blogam10Hello my lovelies! How are you all doing? I had a very eventful week. On the 23rd August was Baltic Way “Anniversary” and just like last year I had the opportunity to “look pretty” in a Ukrainian folk costume. The same as last year people everyone could light a candle in the road as a tribute to Baltic Way.

So What is Baltic Way?

15948__51a6f33e18cd2.jpgThe Baltic Way or Baltic Chain (also Chain of Freedom, Estonian: Balti kett, Latvian: Baltijas ceļš, Lithuanian: Baltijos kelias, Russian: Балтийский путь) was a peaceful political demonstration that occurred on 23 August 1989. 1408687904_bcApproximately two million people joined their hands to form a human chain spanning 675.5 kilometers (419.7 mi) across the three Baltic states – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, considered at the time to be constituent republics of the Soviet Union.The demonstration originated in “Black Ribbon Day” protests held in the western cities in the 1980s. It marked the 50th anniversary of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany. The pact and its secret protocols divided Eastern Europe into spheres of influence and led to the occupation of the Baltic states in 1940. More about that you can read here.
