Reflections on the History of a Century Ago on the Basis of the Collection of Documents “Lithuania — Russia 1917—1920”
Publication type
Cheslovas Laurinavichus 
Affiliation: Lithuanian Institute of History
Address: Lithuania, Vilnius

Based on archival documents from the Lithuanian and Russian archives, as well as taking advantage of the latest works of historians, the article presents a polemical view of some aspects of the history of the 20th century, relevant for Lithuania and Russia. These are the problems of the red terror, world revolution, propaganda, as well as the preconditions for peace between Lithuania and Russia. The author emphasizes that the peace treaty between Russia and Lithuania not only allowed the two states to build bilateral relations on the basis of peaceful cooperation, but also became one of the treaties that Soviet Russia concluded for possible peaceful and smooth relations with Europe, including the mediation of Lithuania.
