Direct military intervention on the ground of Latvia at the moment is unlikely, said Commissioner of the Ministry of defence Dace Kundrat, based on the discussions in the government military threats to the state.
"The probability of an attack is low, but it is possible to observe elements of hybrid war ", ? quoted the envoy of the Ministry of defense news Agency referring to the Latvian news Agency Leta.
"On Tuesday, the Cabinet held a closed meeting where they discussed military threat to Latvia. Based on the discussion this danger called unlikely, however, stressed the uncertainty of the foreign policy situation in relation to the situation in Ukraine ", - has told the Kundrat. On 3 September the foreign Minister of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden in General statement after the meeting on Thursday in Copenhagen expressed concern about the increasing military power of Russia. In April, the Ministers of Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Sweden and Finland called Russia's actions " the biggest challenge to European security ". The Nordic countries are then told that the Baltic States, where there is a significant Russian-speaking Diaspora, could threaten the Russian military invasion. However, on August 18, commander of the Swedish armed forces General SVERKER Goranson said that the Russian Federation is a challenge for Sweden, but not threatening her. After a few days the Minister of foreign Affairs of Denmark Christian Jensen caused a political outcry in his country statements about restoring active diplomatic dialogue with Russia." Even if Russia is a major danger, we will not find a large enough crane to move the entire country somewhere. Russia is, where is, and That's forever. This means that we have to build a relationship with her ", he said. Russia, for its part, informs that North America and NATO intentionally stir up anti-Russian hysteria that under the pretext of danger from the capital of Russia to increase its military presence near Russian borders.
