The Forgotten Ones

Crozier, Brian
August 1980
National Review;8/22/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 17, p1007
The article focuses on the continuing resistance of the Baltic states against the tyranny of the Soviet Union since 1940. On August 3, 1940, the Baltic states were permitted to join the USSR. After four decades of forcing the Baltic states to join the Soviet empire, resistance to the Soviets have not been diminished. In Riga, several athletes complimented those who refused to participate in the Moscow Olympics. However, in Latvia, the level of forced Russification and Sovietization is considered worse compared to other regions. With its trade and credits aplenty, the Soviet Union managed to include a number of captive nations such as Ethiopia, South Yemen, and Afghanistan.
