Today, at the meeting in Riga, the Ministers of Justice of the Baltic states signed a memorandum, in which the parties coordinated their actions for demanding the reparations for the Soviet occupation from Russia.

According to the Ministers of Justice of the Baltic States, the legal continuity of the existence of the Baltic States makes it possible to put forward this requirement. International law stipulates, that in case of occupation, it is possible to demand compensation for material damage and an apology from the occupying country.
