U.S. engagement in the Baltic Region

U.S. engagement in the Baltic Region

15.06.2017

When Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland requested and received U.S. and NATO military support following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2014, it garnered massive attention – and rightly so. The measured response to Russian aggression, which supplemented on-going training, exercises, and Baltic Air Policing, demonstrated U.S. commitment to the region’s security and stability, and helped to ease the increasing anxiety resulting from Russia’s actions. As important as this was, defense cooperation is but one facet of U.S. engagement in the Baltic region.

A New Transatlantic Security Bargain

Seasoned NATO heads will snicker at the idea that squabbles over defense spending are new. As long ago as 1970, then U.S. ambassador to NATO Harlan Cleveland described the alliance as “an organized controversy about who is going to do how much.” Since NATO’s inception, the United States has carried most of the organization’s burden.
