The American administration is nervous due to the fact that he was losing control of Europe. These trends are negatively reflected on the hegemony of the United States who are forced to resort to threats.
This was told the chief editor of the Tallinn newspaper “Capital” Alexander Chaplygin, commenting on published in the Washington report, which describes the scenario of a nuclear war in the Baltic States, and it is Russia’s fault.
“All these horror stories about the Russian threats to pursue a very specific goal: to preserve the dependence of the Baltic States, and possibly the whole of Europe, from the United States, as the chief guarantor of world security. In recent years Europe begins to spiral out of US control, and it seriously threatens American hegemony,” explained the journalist.
In addition, according to him, in the Baltic republics “Russian threat” is rather frequently used to divert attention from domestic problems.
