Europe 1920: Treaty of Rapallo
During the Great War, Italy and Serbia had been given conflicting promises of territory by the Allies. When the War ended, Serbia united with other Slavic states to form the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (or Yugoslavia) while Italy occupied the lands it had been promised, many of which had large Slavic populations. Disputes between the two countries, especially over the status of the city of Fiume, led to the 1920 Treaty of Rapallo.

After the decisive victory at Warsaw, Poland went back on the offensive. Reaching the Niemen River in September, the Polish Army captured the contested city of Vilnius/Wilno in a brief war with Lithuania, and clashed with the Soviets for the last time. With the Soviets eager to end the war, and the League of Nations pressuring Poland to accept its territorial gains, peace negotiations began.
