The Latvian War of Independence, sometimes called the Latvian War of Liberation (Latvian: Latvijas br v bas c as, literally, the "Struggles for Latvia's freedom," or Latvijas atbr vo anas kar , "War of Latvian Liberation"), was a series of military conflicts in Latvia between 5 December 1918, after the Republic of Latvia proclaimed its independence, and the signing of the Treaty of Riga between the Republic of Latvia and the Russian SFSR on August 11, 1920. The war involved Latvia (its provisional government was supported by Estonia, Poland, and the Western Allies, particularly the United Kingdom) against the Russian SFSR and the Bolsheviks' short-lived Latvian Socialist Soviet Republic. Germany and the United Baltic Duchy added a new level of intrigue, initially being nominally allied to the Nationalist/Allied force, but attempting to jockey for German domination of Latvia. Eventually, the tensions flared up after a German coup against the Latvian government and led to open war. Following a ceasefire, the Germans developed a ploy, nominally dissolving into the West Russian Volunteer Army led by general Pavel Bermont- Avalov.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Zolit de is a neighbourhood of Riga, the capital of Latvia, located on the city''s western edge. Zolit de''s Town plan consists mainly of prefabricated concrete block Soviet-built apartments. Construction began in 1984, and halted in 1991, when Latvia obtained its independence from the USSR. Large parts of the population, as in similar neighbourhoods of Riga, are mainly-Russian speaking.In 1991 Latvia gained independence from the USSR and due to the end of financing from Moscow construction projects halted. Few new homes were built until after Latvia joined the EU in 2004.Due to the flow of investments from EU funds and private parties, Riga is experiencing a new construction boom. Construction of newer parts of Zolit de has begun, and 15 new apartment houses are planned, with some already completed. Construction of private housing has recently commenced again in the northern area.

Nation-Building and Minority Politics in Post-S...
29,90 € *

Despite socialism's best efforts, ethnic identity remained a salient feature in Central and Eastern Europe. Not only did ethno-nationalism help to bring about the fall of the socialist regimes in this region, but it also characterised much of the post-socialist politics. Nation-Building and Minority Politics examines the issue of minority politics in post-socialist states within this dual structure. In particular, it offers an in-depth analysis of post-restoration politics in Estonia and Latvia, covering four issues. First, it looks at the historical context of the current group relations. Second, the study explores the domestic nature of minority politics in Estonia and Latvia by looking at domestic politics and policies. Third, it examines the role of the Russian Federation as an 'external national homeland' through illustrating developments within Russian foreign policy. Finally, the book analyses the role of three significant European organisations, namely the OSCE, EU and the Council of Europe as agents of 'conditionality'. Overall, this study combines old and new theoretical approaches to nation-building and minority politics to exhibit the changing nature of the relationship between majority, minority, external national homeland, and international organisations in today's Europe.

The majority of the foreign population in Latvia is Russian ethnic origin. During the Soviet era, these Soviet citizens particular Russian ethnics had settled as internal migrants. It was only after the collapse of the Soviet Union, they changed their status to be the international migrants. My first travel to Latvia was in 2005, I was unexpected to see one country two standards. At that time, I realized that in order to understand the atmosphere between Russian and Latvian ethnics, there was a need to learn from daily news, life information, religions, cultures and languages of these two cultures. It is also useful to study in as parallel. According to the Council of Europe the Parliamentary Assembly working Papers of 2008 indicated that there are 432,896 people were non-citizens or without any citizenship at all. Although the structure of USSR was disappeared for many decades, however, the shadow of this structure is still influenced the atmosphere of Russia and its neighbor countries.

The Shadow in the East
21,34 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Baltics are about to be thrust onto the world stage. With a 'belligerent' Vladimir Putin to their east (and 'expansionist' NATO to their west), Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are increasingly the subject of unsettling headlines in both Western and Russian media. But how real are these fears, subject as they are to media embellishment, qualification and denial by both Russia and the West? What do they mean for those living in the Baltics - and for the world?Based on her extensive research and work as a journalist, Aliide Naylor takes us inside the geopoltitics of the region. Travelling to the heart of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania she explores modernity in the region that birthed Skype, investigates smuggling and reports of troop movements in the borderlands, and explains the countries' unique cultural identities. Naylor tells us why the Baltics matter, arguing persuasively that this region is about to become the new frontline in the political struggle between East and West.
