The Cold War ended a long time ago. However, in the easternmost region of Europe things don’t look much different, at least if we talk about the tension between Vladimir Putin’s Russia and the NATO countries. In a way the Cold War is still alive three decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

In this video we tell you about the threat that the three Baltic countries, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, face when they look the Russian bear in the face.

  • In This Story: Soviet Union

    The Soviet Union, officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was a federal socialist state in Northern Eurasia that existed from 1922 to 1991. Nominally a union of multiple national Soviet republics, it was a one-party state (until 1990) governed by the Communist Party, with Moscow as its capital in its largest republic, the Russian SFSR.

    The Soviet Union had its roots in the October Revolution of 1917 when the Bolsheviks, headed by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Provisional Government that had earlier replaced the monarchy of the Russian Empire.

    On 25 December 1991, Gorbachev resigned and the remaining twelve constituent republics emerged from the dissolution of the Soviet Union as independent post-Soviet states. The Russian Federation (formerly the Russian SFSR) assumed the Soviet Union’s rights and obligations and is recognized as its continued legal personality.
