The Baltic States - Russians in the EU

Baltikum - Die Russen in der EU

At the turn of the year, Latvia took over the EU Council Presidency for the first half of 2015. A delicate task because, just like the Latvians, the Russian  minority in the country is worried about current affairs. Many Russians in the Baltic states today feel connected to Europe, but others still secretly lean towards Moscow. After the independence of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania 25 years ago, the former Soviet citizens had to find a new identity. This process, far from over, is not made easier by the Russian annexation of Crimea. Discontented Russians in particular might be susceptible to Putin's propaganda and his attempts to destabilize neighboring countries. At least that's what the non-Russian Balts fear.
