August 31

Parliament of Lithuania:

A timetable for the withdrawal of the armed forces of the Russian Federation from the territory of Lithuania, with the deadline for the final withdrawal of the army being 31 August 1993, was signed six months later, on 8 September 1992. Later problems related to non-compliance with the timetable for the withdrawal of the Russian army and the suspension of the withdrawal, which was announced on several occasions, did not change the deadlines that had been set. The last military train returning to the East arrived at the railway station in Kena on 31 August 1993 at 23.45 and left the territory of Lithuania without stopping.
