Moscow makes open threats to the Baltic countries: they are doing everything to be demilitarized

“Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia are doing everything for Russia to demilitarize them, pursuing an anti-Russian policy,” A. Klimova wrote.

He made such threats ostensibly because of the Baltic countries’ desire to hinder Russian transit and “everything that is Russian”.

“260 years ago, the vassal principality of Curonian Spit and Žiemgala undertook not to interfere with Russian transit and the construction of Orthodox churches. Now there are Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, which are obstructing Russian transit and everything Russian,” he asserted.

He also mentioned the word “demilitarization” used by Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin to justify his bloody war in Ukraine.

“These countries are doing everything for Russia to demilitarize them. The only problem is that the political dwarfs of the Baltic countries may nevertheless provoke the fourth (from Napoleon to Hitler) great war in Europe. And it is no longer just a matter of choosing their province,” said A. Klimov.

In June, Russia became embroiled in a dispute with Lithuania after Vilnius restricted the transit of sanctioned goods by rail from the Russian mainland to Kaliningrad.

Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs was angry that Soviet monuments were being dismantled in the Baltic States. The Ministry “promised to take measures regarding the demolition of Soviet monuments in the Baltic States”. They emphasized that in response to the “Russophobic actions” of the Baltic republics, the country will take asymmetric measures, primarily in the political and economic fields.

V. Putin is visiting Kaliningrad

Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived on Thursday for a visit to the Kaliningrad region, where, according to the Kremlin, he was preparing to discuss the issues of transit through Lithuania, amid sharp tensions between Moscow and the EU over the war in Ukraine.

“Of course, Kaliningrad is a very important region of Russia… The complex situation related to payments to Europe will certainly be discussed,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian media before the visit.

Putin’s visit to Kaliningrad comes amid tensions between Moscow and Brussels after the European Union imposed a series of sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.

In June, Russia became embroiled in a dispute with Lithuania after Vilnius restricted the transit of sanctioned goods by rail from the Russian mainland to Kaliningrad.

After threats and protests from Moscow, Brussels declared that Lithuania must allow the transit of Russian goods, except for weapons.

The Kaliningrad region, which was taken from Germany by the Red Army towards the end of World War II, was separated from the main part of Russia when the Soviet Union collapsed and Lithuania became an independent state.

Last month, Russia said it had deployed three planes armed with Kinzhal missiles, which Moscow calls hypersonic weapons, to the Kaliningrad region. The Russian Defense Ministry stated that these aircraft will be on “24/7 combat duty”.
