Abstract

The article endeavours to clarify how the issue of the Baltic States was treated before and during the Paris Peace Conference (1918—1920); how the separatists of the Russian Empire Baltic provinces managed to get to the Conference; what did the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian provisional governments intended to achieve from the Conference; how was the Baltic issue treated in 1918—1920 by Britain, France, USA, Poland and by the White Russians. The topic of purveyance of British and French armament and military materials to Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian provisional government is not treated in this article. The article attempts to cover the activities of the three Baltic States together, although the main attention is given to Estonia.
