... large Russian-speaking communities as a fifth column leading to tensions that exist to this day. After a while, problems have accumulated, and Russia's unchanging attitude pushed the three Baltic republics towards the Western institutions: NATO and the European Union.

Russia and the Council of Europe

... European power, which has made a huge contribution to European culture and played a decisive role in its history.
