The Baltics: should Britain be rushing to their defence?

Our well known degenerative friends from Rand Corporation gave us another reason for fun:

Deterring Russian Aggression in the Baltic States

Stupidity of the report is obviouse because there is no attempt to analize Russian motivation and Russian goals, and there is no even word NBC-defence in the list of abbreviations.

They analize two main scenarios:
Russians attack Spratlands with some Tank Battallions without air support at all. (Absolute stupidy)

Sprats try to supress (and may be genocide) local ethnic minorities (first of all - Russians), and Russia dont intervent. (Absolutelly unrealistic).

They dont try to analise nor 'Georgian scenario', nor 'Crymean scenario', neither any possible scenario.
Plenty of **** play going on, sounds about right IMHO.
 
Looks like the usual fringe loonies, actively supported by the Kremlin that we had throughout the Cold War. Desperately trying to undermine western unity when confronted with an expansionist Muscovite State.

Whatever is their opinion - it is their opinion. Most of Swedens clearly understand problems from joining NATO and dont see potentional profit from it. If they will be members of NATO - their main cities will be annihilated in first hours of the war. If they will be neutral - they will get South Norway and rich oil fields.
 
Keep digging.
 
Baltic thread / Arctic thread? An attack on Sweden would see Finland and Norway kick off, St Petersburg is not far off and Murmansk might see some shipping lost.

A land assault would be resisted by all three and I really can not imagine NATO sitting by even if it did mean kissing goodbye to the Baltics with Kaliningrad also getting a pummelling.

So, if Sweden is attacked first it will be within minutes of a greater offensive against NATO, of which Rusdia would win a limited war.

What is the potentional reason to attack Sweden? Sweden try not to create any problems to Russia last two centuries.
 
The mere existence of an independent Ukraine and Belarus is a problem for Moscow. Under the Muscovite Mindset, there can be no alternative power centre in the lands of the former Russian principalities. As regards Ukraine, it can comfortably claim to be successor of Kievan Rus, which was the greatest of the former Russian principalities and the founder of Russian culture. Then the Mongols smashed the Russian principalities and the hitherto minor prrovincial town of Moscow established itself as the Mongol henchman and tax-collector; learning from its masters before turning on them and then devouring any other Russian principality that dared to oppose it. Any resurgence of Kiev as a competitor to Muscovite supremacy is seen as a threat.

Russia never have big plans about fleet.

Efectiveness - more results with less spending.

It was already described in Arctic thread. Navy dont use beluga whales, they are too stupid (but smarter than ordinary Brit) - they are guard and search animals in FSB and Rosguard. Navy use aphalins and killer whales.

Sillamae. It's a town in Estonia with mostly Russian speaking population.

87,5% are ethnically Russians, less than 5% are Estonians. More than half are Russian citizens.
There is a monument to the fallen (during WW2) soldiers and sailors in the town.
Recently unidentified NATO serviceman climbed up to the monument with RPG apparently to humiliate local Russians.

How it will be in English: "Если они плюнут в нас, мы утрёмся, а если мы плюнем в них - они утонут"?

Looks Estonian and looks to be mounting an OP, how is that humiliating?
