|1.||Bureaucratic Containment and Mobilisation of National Identity: The Case of Soviet Lithuania||00:59:34||Vilius Ivanauskas||5/3/2010||The centralization of Soviet planning could be seen particularly in the content (plans, goals and activities) issued by central institutions. Soviet republics had to adapt to such plans and, at the local level, to launch activities supporting central projections.

This vision aimed for sovietisation, ‘rapprochement’ and ‘merging’ of the nations.
