The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the charge d’affaires of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia on Tuesday. Russia demanded that its citizens living in these countries have a guarantee of safety to take part in the Russian presidential elections. The Baltic countries were accused of “sabotage”.

The statement stated that diplomats were summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs due to the “lack of appropriate response” by the authorities of the Baltic states to Russian calls to ensure security during the March vote at polling stations in the embassies in Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn.
