26. January 1921

In 1921, a year after the signing of the Treaty of Tartu and the Bolsheviks had defeated the Whites, the Triple Entente decided to abandon its support on the requirement of Russia's completeness. On January 26, its highest assembly (Great Britain, France and Italy) acknowledged Estonia's independence de jure. Before that, on January 14, the same had been done by Argentina.

The Triple Entente's example was soon followed by most of the European countries and on September 22, Estonia, Lativa and Lithuania were accepted to the League of Nations, the predecessor to the United Nations, as full members. The most difficult was gaining the support of the United States of America, which granted it on July 28, 1922.
