The conditions for (German) prisoners in the Soviet Union (in terms of food and support) were not so bad. Many prisoners, upon their return to Germany, remembered the warmth of their interactions with the Russian population, and in these days we can even call it human relations.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and the Baltic States.
Sputnik uses footage showing a post published by a Facebook user, Oksana Bondarenko (now Laimīgās Stundas) on December 14, 2019. The author of the post indicated Tīnūžu pagasts as a location which is in Ikšķile municipality, in the central part of the country, some 200 km away from Daugavpils, where the NATO base is located.
Another footage that we see in the video, which according to Sputnik, shows the current protests in Latvia, is from 2016. That year, on June 6, the 2nd Cavalry Regiment arrived in Daugavpils and conducted a training operation Dragoon Ride. It was that day when Representatives of the Latvian Armed Forces and Police removed the poster with text attacking US soldiers in Latvia. An administrative case has been initiated for placing a poster without permission. Then-President of Latvia Raimonds Vējonis later said in his TV statement that this was an isolated incident and did not reflect the general attitudes of Latvians.
