Now, I don’t want to be a nay-sayer, but it seems relations between Russia and the West have fallen lately. Quite a shame, too, especially since they seem dead set on threatening the security of the relatively prosperous Baltic nations.
Oh well. The best way to make sure that nations play a positive role in the world is to assure them that they have more to gain from cooperation than from intimidation. This means a dedicated effort to keep block Russia’s external political moves, wherever they may be.
