The war between Russia and NATO will break out in the Baltic Sea

Summary of Disinformation

The US Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments stated in its recent report that the conflict between Russia and NATO is likely to lead to a military conflict in the Baltic Sea.


An often repeated narrative about the approaching conflict between Russia and NATO.

In fact, the cited report resume explicitly says that “a major conflict between NATO and Russia remains unlikely”.

The report itself mentions no upcoming war between Russia and the NATO in the Baltic Sea, but speaks about the necessary precautions to strengthen the defence capabilities of the NATO members in the area (see p. 30 - 35).
