Lithuania, a small Baltic country with a population of only 3.5 million, is often regarded as an insignificant small country on the international stage. But recently it has challenged the giants: to reject China on the Taiwan issue. Looking back at history, Lithuania was also at the forefront of nuclear confrontation among superpowers.

Lithuania used to have a large number of nuclear bombs, enough to destroy all European cities and small cities. At the time, it was still part of the Soviet Union. The geographical location gives Lithuania an important strategic value: it is close to Western Europe and faces Scandinavia.

After Lithuania became fully independent in 1991, it was surprisingly found that it was just a small country with a population of approximately 3.5 million, which was of little importance on the international stage.

Recently, however, Lithuania has challenged the giants: resisting China on the Taiwan issue and refusing to compromise; supporting dissidents in neighboring Belarus, Belarus has been accused of widespread human rights violations.
