Return of property

No one asked for the land to be returned, and no one returned it. Under the Soviet regime, nothing was returned. Most of the khutors (homesteads) were demolished. Kolkhozes were built in their place. On Lithuanian independence, flats began to be allocated, and compensation paid for lost land. Domas Laurinskas received some compensation but lost it all through inflation.
