Galina Sapožnikova – La congiura lituana. Come uccisero l’Urss e cosa accadde a chi tentò di salvarla

foreword: Giulietto Chiesa

THE BOOK: What happened on the night of January 13th, 1991 at the television tower in Vilnius? Those events are recalled by many protagonists of the period that coincided with the Soviet Thermidor. The book tells how Lithuania has become the testing ground for future “color revolutions”, and presents to Italian readers a version of the facts, different from the official one, which has been in recent years uncritically accepted in the West. Through detailed interviews conducted by the author it emerges as the new, free and independent Lithuania has persecuted not only many of the Russians remained in its territory but also political opponents.
