US Permanent Representative to the OSCE James Gilmore noted that, according to the US leadership, there is no threat to the Baltic countries from Russia.
«The Baltic states are a very large part of Western society at the moment, and we do not believe that there is a threat to them at present (from Russia — IF),» Gilmore said during a press conference on Tuesday.
He recalled that all the Baltic states are members of NATO.
«The United States has clearly stated its position. They (the Baltic countries — IF) are part of the military exercises conducted by NATO, which should not pose a threat to the Russian people,» the US Permanent Representative to the OSCE added.
