Lithuania has already achieved its strategic goals: it joined the European Union and NATO but what aspects of the accession of both Lithuania and the Baltic States into the European Union are useful for Russia?

Russia will find it very useful if it has much influence in the Baltic States and especially if the Baltic States speak not their on but Russia’s voice coordinating policies and expressing friendly statements, in other words, what Russia wants. Already now the European Parliament may have a Lithuanian Member saying what Russia needs.

Baltic and Russian Affairs Expert Paul Goubl stressed that the Baltic countries are feeling a constantly increasing pressure from Moscow especially in terms of security and shaping of foreign policy. In your opinion, what possible threats Russia poses to Lithuania?

One could talk about many aspects but I would like to mention just a few current and the most obvious facts: one of them has not been yet assessed in Lithuania – the issue of energy safety. It is only a matter of time when we in Lithuania experience the same scenario of Ukraine, Moldova or Georgia.
