Sources for the early period[edit]

Exclusively for Renata3 (;-P): sources for the quote "Initially the Lithuanian SSR was proclaimed much earlier, on December 16 1918, after the 1st Congress of the Lithuanian Communist Party had been held on October 1 1918. On February 27 1918 it was combined with the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic to form the Lithuanian-Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (LBSSR, or "Litbel"), which existed until August 25 1919." are for example http://www.worldstatesmen.org/Lithuania.htm (chronology) http://www.marxists.org/glossary/orgs/c/o.htm#lithuanian-communist-party

See also Lithuanian-Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic. Rulzeng 18:01, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Now much better, clearer, and specific. See, all you need to do - check some sources :P Renata 18:34, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

POV concerns[edit]

I attached the {{POV}} tag to the article because I saw it overstressing the former country aspect and understressing the puppet regime aspect, thus resembling the state of Estonian SSR before {{WikiProject Estonia}} managed to neutralise it. I was then caught in a few other things regarding the {{Soviet occupation}} template which delayed my explanation of this issue, and apologise for that.

Accordingly, I will add once more the tag. No disrespect for Renata3 is intended, and if she'll revert again, I will this time consider her to have read my concern, and not readd. Digwuren 16:42, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Please provide reputable sources that deny it is a former country with a puppet regime before reapplying POV tag. --Doopdoop (talk) 19:17, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Proposed move to Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic[edit]

It seems that given that the formal name for this nation was "Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic", the soviet prefix abbreviation (-"SSR") shouldn't be in the full article name. Therefore, I propose to move the article to its full form, Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic. We wouldn't have an article about North Korea titled "DPRK", would we? --Micahbrwn (talk) 09:46, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Please discuss this multimove here --Lox (t,c) 11:46, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Any border change?[edit]

Were there any border changes to Lithuanian territory after the Soviet invasion and creation of the LSSR? In other words, was the territory of LSSR different from the territory of pre-1940 independent Lithuania? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 17:04, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
