If in 2004 Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia were secure, today they are almost on the front line. The result of membership of the Baltic states in NATO is a visible degradation of their security.
Today all efforts of the Baltic states are focused on preparation for war [against Russia]. Russia is not a threat [for the Baltic states], but Moscow is adequately answering to the provocative growth of NATO’s activities near Russia’s border.
The Baltic states are territory for exercises of foreign armies, comfort bridgehead for blitzkrieg to East, small coin in the big geopolitical game.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, portraying NATO as an aggressor and presenting the Baltic states as the puppets of the Alliance. The claim also repeats another recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO encircling Russia.
NATO does not seek confrontation with Russia. The Alliance underlined this position in the Brussels Summit Declaration in 2018. This declaration concludes that “Russia’s aggressive actions, including the threat and use of force to attain political goals and challenge the Alliance and undermining Euro-Atlantic security and the rules-based international order”.
