For the Baltic countries “to be left without Washington’s support is to be left without a head”
“The capture of the Capitol by radical supporters of Donald Trump came as a shock not only to the United States, but also to its allies. Never in recent history has the world seen such obvious evidence of the degradation of the most powerful state on the planet as it is today.

Because no one will come to the rescue, since the internal situation in the United States is much more important for the American administration than the situation in distant Eastern Europe, where provocations from the “allies” towards “aggressive Russia” are pouring in like a horn of plenty, ”
