Europe

The tide of micro-nationalism that began to rise in 1989, and swept through Central and Eastern Europe and the USSR, led to the splintering of the USSR in 1991 into 15 new States that were its former constituent republics. Of these, the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which were the first to declare independence, were admitted to membership of the United Nations in September.
