Ukraine crisis: Nato will defend Baltic members from Russia


us-president-barack-obama-pictured-in-honolulu-hawaii-on-december-23-2012-afp_file-jim-watson-e1356507250933PRESIDENT Obama is travelling to Estonia to assure Nato members in the Baltic region of their security and warn Russia from interfering in any of those countries’ affairs.

There are concerns that Russia may attempt to exert influence, and even possibly foment unrest, in other former Soviet states.

Ukraine is not a member of Nato but Estonia, one of the Baltic states, is, and Obama has pledged that Nato will defend it from any Russian interference.
