Sixty Five Years Since Operation Priboi

The 25th of March was the 65th anniversary of the start of Operation Priboi in which the Soviet MVD forcibly deported nearly 95,000 Lithuanians, Latvians, and Estonians to Siberia.  Here they came under the special settlement regime as permanent 'evictees.' This massive crime against humanity is one of the primary reasons that the people of the Baltic States have always been wary of Russia.
