ABSTRACT
The article presents the internal factors that led to Lithuania's liberation. It analyzes the intellectual leadership of Sajūdis, which was able to steer the movement away from Kremlin control and to exploit its mistakes in an effective way. Sqjūdis's successful political strategy was based on its participation in two General Elections in Soviet Lithuania: to the Supreme Soviet of the USSR and to the Supreme Soviet of the Republic. Thus, Sqjūdis's victories enabled the beginning of the dismantling of Soviet power institutions in Lithuania, and became a catalyst in the collapse of the Soviet Empire.
