On this day: the independence of Lithuania

On the 16th of February 1918 the Council of Lithuania (Lietuvos Taryba) declared the independence of Lithuania and the re-establishment of the Lithuanian State.

The reason I know about this? Because I was watching the live feed from the protests in Kyiv, Ukraine and they talked about it! Three months of protests and look at all the people still there!
