On November 17, Jamestown Foundation Senior Fellow Olevs Nikers was interviewed by Romania-based outlet Veridica regarding, among other topics, the best possible outcome for the Baltic states vis-a-vis Russia’s war against Ukraine. A full transcript of the interview can be found here.
“If we are following the realpolitics, then most probably this is what we will have – a peace agreement. Leaving something frozen. And the violence spiral in Europe will continue. This is the most realistic scenario. But the best scenario for the Baltic, regional, Europe, and the whole Transatlantic security would be the complete defeat of Russia in Ukraine. Currently, we see that Western powers and the United States want Ukraine to sign the peace agreement with Russia just keeping Kherson and Zaporizhzhia. It is not bad but it is not the best scenario for the future.”
