Time for NATO to move a much stronger trip wire forwards to the Baltics
NATO, Russia conducting military exercises around Estonia, stoking fears that the Baltic state is next on Kremlin’s list | National Post
Russian and NATO troops took part in rival exercises either side of the Estonian border Wednesday, highlighting fears that the Baltic state could be the next target of the Kremlinís territorial ambitions.
NATO forces put on a show of strength within yards of Estoniaís Russian border, with armoured personnel carriers, tanks and 1,300 Estonian soldiers forming a military parade. The parade, which also included 100 troops from Britain and other European nations, followed warnings from David Cameron on Tuesday that the Baltics could be next in Russiaís sights for a Crimea-style annexation.
