President of Latvia Raimonds Vejonis stated that Europe should be united and vigilant due to the aggression by the Russian Federation, as Spiegel reports.

“We have been observing Russian aggressive policy on reaching its geopolitical aims since 2014… We should be very vigilant. We have to find something very reliable and curbing factor that could secure that Russia would not attack any European country, as it did with Ukraine,” the President of Latvia said.

According to Vejonis, Russian influence should not be underestimated, especially the propaganda in the media. In particular, the President meant those Russians, who had been living in Latvia for many years.

“There are no doubts that Kremlin will do everything possible in order to strengthen its positions in Europe and to make that EU fall apart. Al the democratic countries should be ready for that,” Vejonis added.

Earlier, the Government of Italy has been working to try to end international sanctions against Russia, which the ruling parties in Rome said were ineffective and hurt the Italian economy. 

At the same time, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered to prolong anti-Russian sanctions for aggression in Ukraine for another year.
