ANSWER : LITHUANIA

Explanation

:

Lithuania became the first nation to proclaim independence from the Soviet Union in March 1990. The decision restoring Lithuania’s sovereign rights was issued in accordance with “”the people’s will,”” according to the Lithuanian parliament. The US urged the Soviet Union to recognise the country’s choice to secede, which Moscow did not immediately acknowledge. Since 1940, the Soviet Union has governed Lithuania, an inclusion that Lithuanians themselves have deemed illegal. It had also taken over Lithuania’s Baltic neighbors, Latvia and Estonia. Crowds gathered outside Lithuania’s parliament building when the declaration to restore independence was made, tearing down the Soviet crest from its door and afterwards removing the hammer and sickle insignia from the flag.
