On Sunday night, January 13, 1991 beginning at 1:35 a.m. local time, Soviet special forces using tanks and armored personnel carriers attacked the radio and television transmission tower in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. In the course of the action fourteen innocent people were killed and over 500 injured by Soviet stormtroopers. They were defending the freedom and independence of Lithuania which was reasserted by the democratically elected parliament on March 11, 1990. Soviet president Gorbachev as well as the Soviet legislature recognized Stalin's seizure of Lithuania in 1940 as a criminal consequence of the Hitler-Stalin pact of 1939. But this January Gorbachev spun around and seized Lithuania himself.
