Lithuania

Independence Day February 16

Lithuania celebrates its independence yearly every 16th of February. Lithuania is a legitimate member of the United Nations and The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (2004). Although the country originally declared independence from foreign rule on 1918, the result of World Wars crippled the country’s security infrastructure. It later succumbed to invasion but later re-emerged as an independent nation from its last occupier, the Soviet Union, in 1990.
