In two years, we will mark the 700th anniversary of Grand Duke of Lithuania Gediminas' union with Tatars and the anniversary of the common fight against the Teutonic Order.

According to the bill, the decision would be seen as the appreciation of the significant Tatar mark in the history of Lithuania, their participation in all wars and uprising, fighting for Lithuania's freedom and independence.

"(...) The Tatar community in Lithuania has significantly contributed to the restoration of Lithuania's statehood, history and culture, linked its life with Lithuania and is part of its history," the bill states.

The document proposes that the Lithuanian government should prepare an annual program of history and culture of Lithuanian Tatars by October 1, 2020 and allocated funds for that in the 2021 budget.
