This year Russia may try to test NATO’s strength – intelligence Estonia

The Estonian intelligence service has accused Russia of conducting an information war against the EU, reports “RIA Novosti”.

On Wednesday was published the annual report of the Department of information. “The report we can clearly say that in 2017 the possibility of a military attack of Russia on NATO exists, but it is low,” said Marran reporters at the presentation of the document.

“Given that the Russian government – an authoritarian regime, still can not completely eliminate the risk that the Russian leadership will allow for strategic miscalculation and decides to test NATO’s collective defence”, – is spoken in the report of the Department.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Alliance sees no immediate threat from the Russian Federation to the Eastern flank of NATO.

Earlier the Minister of foreign Affairs of Estonia Sven Mixer stated that the decision of the Ukrainian crisis can not be put in dependence on the solution of other international problems, is a separate issue.

“It is impossible to link with other problems. What is the problem? There were statements that it would be possible to link the issue of Ukraine with the participation of Russia in the fight against international terrorism or nuclear issues,” – said the head of Estonian foreign Ministry.
