UK defense minister: "Real and present danger" from Russia for Baltic States

House of Blackheads, Latvia
Vladimir Putin's greedy eyes could be wandering north of Ukraine.

From the BBC:
There is a "real and present danger" of Russia trying to destabilise the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, the UK defence secretary says.

Michael Fallon said he was worried about "pressure" from Russian President Vladimir Putin on the ex-Soviet states, which are Nato members.

Russia might use tactics there similar to those it used in Ukraine, he said.

Mr Fallon said Nato must be ready for aggression from Russia "in whatever form it takes".
Does anyone seriously believe that President Obama cares about the Baltic States?
