Russia can attack the Baltic countries in 3-4 years, Ainars Dimants said in an interview with Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung Chapter of the National Council of Latvia for electronic media. To prevent this, living in Latvia Russian should be divorced from “Russian information space,” he stated.
As Ainars Dimants stated in an interview with Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung Chapter of the National Council of Latvia for electronic media, “if the EU did not exist, it would have to be created for the geopolitical survival of Europe.”
“It is clear that in three to four years Russia will be ready to attack the Baltic countries, says Latvian politician. “Latvia needs to work to ensure that this does not happen.”
As said early on, his goals include the creation of “alternative media channels” in Russian. “It is normal that the a third of the population is not watching Latvian TV because of the language barrier,” said the politician. The radio station “Radio Latvia” already has a version in Russian, which, according to the demand, is “very popular” and “occupies the first place among Russian radio stations in Latvia.”
Thus, “information would not proceed from Russia, so would not be necessary for Russians living in Latvia to live mentally in the Russian information space,” said Dimants.
