Incited by Soviet Union Russian and Polish minority workers at Vilnius factories protested the government’s consumer goods price hikes at the begging of the year. Meanwhile supporters of Independence held their own demonstrations and Soviet government mounted a propaganda campaign designed to further ethnic strife. On January 8 Soviet Union sent special military units to ensure Soviet order and revoke Lithuanian Independence. On January 11 military units began storming various institutions stating with National Defense Department and Press House building, injuring Lithuanian protesters who interfered. Following the attacks large crowds of people started to encircle the main strategic buildings. During the night between January 12 and 13 Soviet soldiers stormed TV Station which retranslated the news to the world. Tanks drove straight through lines of people killing 13 civilians and injuring 1000. An additional civilian died at the scene due to a heart attack, and one Soviet soldier was killed by friendly fire. A massive crowd encircled Parliament which could have been the next target praying and singing. Soviet military forces retreated instead of attacking and although military raids continued for several months there were no large open military encounters after the night of January 13 which was later claimed the day of Freedom Defenders. A non violent defense by massive crowds of peaceful defenders remains of the central peace in the history of Singing Revolutions that broke down Soviet Union in a peaceful way without precedent.

In the morning, all Lithuanian schools, state institutions and embassies traditionally lit candles in their windows in memory of those who lost their lives during January 13. Meanwhile the Parliament hosted a solemn ceremony and state flag was officially raised in front of the Parliament building that was surrounded by peaceful defenders 25 years ago. Lithuanian army’s Huard of Honor marched through the central Gediminas Street in capital Vilnius. There were dozens of smaller events held throughout January 12 and January 13. The most popular among people were an improvised meadow of forget-me-not flowers and huge bonfires that burnt throughout the night at those places where people surrounded main institutions 25 years ago.

Russian/Nat The trial of former Lithuanian Communist Party leader, Mykolas Burokevicius starts Wednesday in Vilnius. Burokevicius is accused of playing a key role in the 1991 Soviet crackdown in which 13 people were killed and hundreds more wounded. The ageing communist says that he didn't order troops to fire on civilians during the drive for Lithuanian independence and claims the present government is using the trial for its own political ends. If found guilty Burokevicius could be sentenced to death. The violent scenes which erupted around Lithuania's television tower in January 1991 proved to be the last pangs of a dying regime. Thirteen people died and hundreds were wounded during the struggle. The horror at the bloodshed intensified the Baltic state's drive towards independence, which was finally won after the failed Soviet coup in August of that year. When the party was banned, Lithuania's communist leadership fled into hiding in Russia. But for almost three years Mykolas Burokevicius, the Communist Party's first Secretary, has been awaiting trial in Vilnius' Lukiskes prison. He was seized while visiting neighbouring Belorus and smuggled back into Lithuania. Burokevicius says that the decision to fire on civilians in 1991 was taken by the Soviet leadership in Moscow and that he wasn't responsible for the crackdown. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "I think they are waiting for me to repent. I won't ever do that. I consider myself innocent, and the Communist Party of Lithuania is not responsible for the events of January 13th, 1991." SUPER CAPTION: Mykolas Burokevicius, former first Secretary of Communist Party But Lithuanians who lived through the events of five years ago aren't so convinced of Burokevicius' innocence. SOUNDBITE: (Lithuanian) "They (the communists) are to be blamed for those events. Many people perished, and the communists should be brought to account." SUPER CAPTION: Danute Zabulene Although some think it's not only the communists who're to be blamed. SOUNDBITE: (Lithuanian) "These communists are not the only people responsible. There are other criminals who are now in power. These are just the puppets manipulated by those who are in Moscow and Vilnius." SUPER CAPTION: Andrius Tuckus At Vilnius's courthouse, where Burokevicius will be tried, the state procurator has accumulated 300 volumes of evidence against him and Juozas Jarmalavicius, the former member of the Politburo with whom he's jointly accused. But Burokevicius says most of this evidence is false. He says his arrest was illegal and if the Lithuanian government really is democratic it shouldn't be jailing its opponents. He believes his trial is being used for political ends to divert attention away from the present economic problems. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "People are hungry. Look at the high crime rate in Lithuania. We didn't have all this during the Soviet period. People are beginning to realise that the power of the working people is better than the power of the national bourgeoisie in Lithuania." SUPER CAPTION: Mykolas Burokevicius, former first Secretary of Lithuanian Communist Party The case is expected to last several weeks as the prosecutor wades through the evidence, opening the old animosities that stand between Vilnius and Moscow. When Burokevicius takes the stand, Lithuania's communist past will be just as much on trial.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Lithuania is the geographical center of Europe. After a re-estimation of the boundaries of the continent of Europe in 1989, Jean-George Affholder, a scientist at French National Geographic Institute determined that the geographic centre of Europe is located at 54°54′N 25°19′E, near the village of Purnuškės. The method used for calculating this point was that of the centre of gravity of the geometrical figure of Europe. 2. Lithuania was the first country to declare its independence from the Soviet Union. After a landslide victory in elections to the Supreme Soviet, members of Sąjūdis, an anit-communist party, proclaimed Lithuania's independence on 11 March 1990, becoming the first Soviet republic to do so. The Soviet Union attempted to suppress the secession by imposing an economic blockade. Soviet troops attacked the Vilnius TV Tower, killing 14 Lithuanian civilians and wounding 600 others on the night of 13 January 1991 (January Events). 3. The country is home to one of the largest moving sand dunes in Europe. Hollydays in Lithuania must include this spot! The Curonian Spit is a unique and vulnerable, sandy and wooded cultural landscape on a coastal spit which features small Curonian lagoon settlements. The Spit was formed by the sea, wind and human activity and continues to be shaped by them. 4. The capitalof Lithuania, Vilnius, is home to a break-away hipster republic. In 1995, a group of Lithuanian artists and intellectuals erected a statue of Frank Zappa in the nation’s capital Vilnius. Two years later, on April Fool’s Day 1997, the city’s bohemian quarter declared itself the independent Republic of Uzupio. 5. Lithuania has the fourth best basketball team in the world. Basketball is insanely popular here and the country has adequate representation in the NBA. The country's men's team ranking fourth in the world and having won three bronze medals at the Olympics. The team goes by the nickname "The Second Religion". 6. In the early 13th century, the map of Lithuania was much larger. The tribes in the area formed the Kingdom of Lithuania, quickly expanding outwards into Mongol-controlled Russia, as well as segments of Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus. By the late 14th century this Grand Duchy of Lithuania was the largest kingdom in Europe. At the end of the 18th century the Commonwealth was dissolved, and Lithuania was effectively split between Russia and Prussia. 7. Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is known for its Old Town of beautiful architecture. Its Jewish influence until the 20th century has led to it being described as the "Jerusalem of Lithuania" and Napoleon named it "the Jerusalem of the North" as he was passing through in 1812.

It had to maneuver carefully between demands of German authorities that occupied western part of Russian empire which ruled Lithuanian territory since the end of 18th century.

The annual ceremony is part of a routine commemoration events, but this year one of the richest Lithuanian businessman stand out by promising 1 million Euros for those who can find an original Act of Independence. ‘We want to meet centenary by providing a commercial, material stimulus in order to motivate society, maybe it settled in some private collections, maybe in some archives, and there are no motivation to look for it’, said Darius Mockus, President of MG Baltic concern. If the Act will be found, Mockus promised to present it to the State as a gift. The hunt for the Act will last until February 16th in 2018 when Lithuania will mark 100 years since the Independence. Among other popular commemorative events were usual ceremony of raising the flags of all three Baltic States and stretching a special long flag around Gediminas Castle tower. 16 symbolic bonfires will be lit on central Gediminas Avenue in the evening.
