At the beginning of the XX century and about its fortieth
years the Lithuania armed forces were called as Army of Lithuania. In 1940 the
Lithuanian army was disbanded and sent to submission to armed forces of the
Soviet Union. Formation of armed forces of modern Lithuania began during
disintegration of the Soviet Union. On January 17, 1991 the government of
Lithuania officially declared the beginning of creation of own armies intended
for protection of borders. In a year also were created the military and air
forces of the country.
