Analyst: Russian intelligence trying to intimidate US soldiers in Baltics ({{commentsTotal}})

Russian intelligence officials are trying to intimidate US soldiers stationed in Eastern European NATO states and especially the Baltic countries, Keir Giles, British military analyst and expert on Russia, reported on the website of Chatham House, a London-based independent policy institute.

“American soldiers visiting NATO's eastern members, in particular the Baltic states, have been subjected to intimidatory approaches by Russian intelligence officers, and unofficial reports suggest they have also been subjected to cross-border electronic attack including jamming from Russian territory,” wrote Giles.

According to the British analyst, the actions of Russian intelligence officers are part of a dangerous trend of escalation by Russia as the country has been consistently testing the judgment and restraint of the US military.

One example of such behavior is a series of low-level fly-bys of a US guided missile destroyer in the Baltic Sea carried out on two consecutive days by Russian military aircraft last week. The passes were condemned as "unsafe and unprofessional" by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
