Latvian special services: Russia loses the “battle for the minds” of the Baltic states

The image of Russia is becoming less and less attractive for young Latvian citizens, reports, citing a report by the State Security Service of the country.

The secret service emphasizes that in the documents on political planning in Russia the defense of "the so-called compatriots abroad" is widely declared. In fact, the text says, the Russian Federation “needs the so-called compatriots only to support the implementation of aggressive policy».

According to the organization, this allows the Russian authorities not only to distract the attention of their own population from internal problems, but also to influence the political agenda of other countries or international organizations.

According to the special services of the Baltic republic, the Russian Federation forms the contours of influence regardless of ethnic relations.

Last year, the so-called compatriots in Latvia were used to try to "prove" the alleged "Russophobia", "the revival of Nazism and fascism" or "violation of the rights of Russians", which generally contributed to the advancement of Russian interests

- noted in the article.

However, the interest of the republic’s youth in such activities is extremely low. The secret service believes that the inefficiency of pro-Russian organizations in this regard is explained by the fact that they are more focused on the struggle for sources of financing, while losing the battle for the minds.

    What other minds? The transit was practically lost, and they are no longer interesting. NATO countries? Well then. As if in the near future they would not have to rejoice in a pan with fried herring.

      False promise always leads to incorrect conclusions. The next time the author should immediately refer to the US State Department - it will be more honest so that the article could not be read further.

    When the Tribalts completely put their teeth on the shelf, the sane and Russian-speaking will either flee to Russia or separate from the territory. The rest are uninteresting. Nobody will invest money and resources in these territories again, and there are no fools to feed the pensioners remaining there.

    Latvian special services: Russia loses the “battle for the minds” of the Baltic states

    - Everything is exactly the opposite ... - Now no one will understand the minds of the Balts ... - Everyone wanted some kind of "independence", but got into a tough forced NATO bondage ... - And nothing from the "independent" Baltic states there is no culture left (no theater, no cinema, and even no rock festivals); no industry (all plants and factories are standing); no agriculture and fishing (all fish processing is stagnant ... - no one needs these products); no youth "independent ambition" - all young people went to work in Europe) ...
    - But the Russian Opposition and the movement for human rights ... - are still very strong and organized ... - so why then did Russia "lose" in this Baltic region ??? And what "minds" is Russia worth fighting for today ???

      In February I was in Riga. By the way, many young citizens speak Russian among themselves in the company. It seemed to me that in Riga there are more Russians than Latvians. Let them live, in the Russian Federation demography, as it were, also needs to be deduced in plus.

    Russia is losing ??? The Balts LIE and BAT! The USA assigned them the role of the Baltic MOSCOW, which can only puff.
    Russia is not losing.

    It's like that joke. Why is he elusive? And all because no one catches him.

    So with the minds of the Baltic states! They are not for free in Russia !!!

    Russia does not fight for the minds of the Baltic states and has never fought. Therefore, there is no one and nothing to lose. This is nonsense of the American Baltic gray mare !!!
    With which we congratulate them.
