Brutality → Latvia (1940-1941)... First Soviet occupation (Set 2)

The occupation of Baltic states refers to the occupation of the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) first by the Soviet Union under the provisions of the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. In the first year of Soviet occupation, from June 1940 to June 1941, the number confirmed executed, conscripted, or deported is minimally estimated at 124,467: 59,732 in Estonia, 34,250 in Latvia, and 30,485 in Lithuania.

You can see numerous corpses of civilians who were executed by NKVD (People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs; it was the leading secret police organization of the Soviet Union that was responsible for political repressions during Stalinism) in Latvia during 1940-1941. How many such graves of those cruelly murdered were and still are hidden beneath Latvian soil? The names of many of those buried in these graves are not known.

propaganda, Pribaltican countries were in Russian empere before WW1, then Lenin gave it to Germany as I remind.

There were no need to kill too meny.
Moreover, Latvian soldiers killed 1000ths Russians at 1917 Revolution as Lenin's SS Army. So, this is a propaganda.
