Russian lawmakers question legitimacy of USSR State Council recognizing Baltic independence

The lawmakers from the ruling United Russia party believe that the State Council was an unconstitutional authority, and its decisions caused “great damage to the sovereignty, security and defence capability of the country”.

The State Council of the USSR was created in 1991, and during its first meeting recognized the independence of the three Baltic states.


In the letter, the Russian MPs claim that the State Council was an illegitimate authority.

The MPs go on to say that they interpret these decisions as “criminal acts and especially dangerous crimes against the state” and that they should be classified as treason.
