Report: Russian Groups Activate in Latvia

The group is now forming up in Latvia to “defend Russian schools and rights of non-citizens.”

According to sources located in Eastern Europe, Russian organizations in border countries including Latvia and Estonia have now become active. According to OneWayJapan.com, the Russian International group formed “self-defense” units in Crimea prior to the invasion of the region by the Russian military. That same group is now forming up in Latvia to “defend Russian schools and rights of non-citizens.”

RusIntern was apparently formed in Moscow in February, and is associated with top officials in the Kremlin. Deputy Chief of Latvian Security Police Juris Leitietis stated, “I believe this organization was formed in a way that allows it to have strong political backing. The people who are members of this organization have strong backing from Russian special services.”

The Baltic News Network has seconded the report.
