'Russia's growing threat': After Ukraine, fears grow that Baltic states could be Vladimir Putin's next targets

The West must stand up to Russia over Ukraine or Europe could descend into a major war for the first time since 1945, diplomats warned today as efforts to negotiate peace hung by a thread.

As the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, prepared to brief Barack Obama in Washington on Monday about the state of the negotiations, a former US ambassador to Ukraine predicted that Estonia and the other Baltic states – all members of Nato – could be Vladimir Putin’s next targets if he is allowed to hold on to territory won by force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is not the aggressor here. The Unites States has admitted "brokering" and funding the coup that drove the elected government from Kiev a year ago, triggering this last twelve months of war. Russia has not done anything here. If Russia had really come across that border they would have been in Kiev in 48 hours. Shame on the Independent for parroting the US propaganda. I wonder if they will claim to have been shot down in a helicopter in Iraq next!
