Country Reports

The Three Baltic States: Political and Social Impact One Year After the Start of Russia's War of Aggression against Ukraine

by Oliver Morwinsky, Daiga Krieva, Sveta Pääru, Fausta Simaityte

Determination and unity

Russia's unprovoked war of aggression on Ukraine has led to great determination and unity in all three Baltic states.

For all three states, the war in Ukraine is also a war for their own freedom. Support is therefore enormous, both politically and socially. The countries are aware that freedom has a price. They are united in their support for Ukraine (victory and joining Western organisations) and demand a courageous approach to Russia and its crimes. Far-reaching consequences can be observed in the field of defense, energy and in dealing with their own societies.
