Concern about Russia’s military aggressiveness was expressed as Nordic and Baltic prime ministers met in Stockholm Monday, on the eve of the Nordic Council’s regular session here.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg told the press “We’ve seen more Russian activity in our waters…They want to show they have the military capacity”, while her Latvian counterpart Laimduta Straujuma spoke of a new and more disturbing attitude from Russia, on the borders, in the air, and along the coasts. But Straujuma doesn’t think Russia would trespass on NATO countries.

All of the Nordic and Baltic states are members of NATO except Sweden and Finland.

At the meeting with the press, the Danish and Finnish prime ministers, Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Alexander Stubb, said they thought Sweden did a good job of protecting its territory during the recent hunt for “foreign underwater activity” in the Stockholm archipelago.
