This February 16 is more beautiful and sunny than ever before. It means that the next one hundred years of our restored statehood will also be greatly encouraging: free and independent for all Lithuanians. February 16 means an independent state, independent people and independent citizens – all those who know the price of freedom, treasure their history and cherish national memory. This date is directly linked to the declaration signed by the Union of Lithuanian Freedom Fighters exactly 70 years ago. Our memory and our history are immensely important to us.
