Example text

The rebellion started with a sudden attack by the local nobility on the Russian authorities and their military installations in Raseiniai. In the middle of April, 1830 all of the territory of the Lithuanian districts apart from the cities of Vilnius, Kaunas, Trakai and Palanga had been captured by rebels. Soon, in May, 1831 Russian army units numbering close to 31,000 men counter-attacked. The 25-30,000 poorly-armed rebels had difficulty in fighting the Russian troops. Moreover, the rebel leadership had great difficulties in maintaining order in the ranks.

The Lithuanians had to deal not so much with Russian affairs, as with the German military and civil establishment. The pro-independence Lithuanian politicians proclaimed Lithuania’s independence on February 16, 1918 which was only later recognised by Germany on March 23, 1918. Nevertheless, the first Lithuanian government was established only after the German capitulation on the western front on November 11, 1918. After the end of World War I, the Soviets in power after the October Revolution of 1917 attempted to establish their own puppet government in Lithuania.

It steered import flows towards “economically important” imports, the promotion of exports through subsidies, and the end of bilateral trade treaties with other countries. For the countries concerned, trade with Germany promised advantages, but the Reich believed it could utilise its economic space (Grossraum) or regional bloc, thus the redistribution of German foreign trade from Western Europe and North America to southeast Europe, the Near East, Latin America, and Northern Europe was strategically important.
