      Here is the right moment Estonia was left without an army, everyone is in the exercises, you want to take it with your bare hands. Without sprats, NATO will definitely fall apart.

        But who needs them, what with sprats, what without them. America, if only, what would annoy Russia. The Baltic states can only yelp at Russia.

    There was an article about books today. After it, I looked at the library with different eyes. The art of the Baltic republics --- hooh ---- how they praised the Soviet Motherland. Now they probably explain it by intimidation. I wonder where these monuments, stained-glass windows, tapestries, gravestones are now. Not quite on the topic, but about traitors.
