Russian intelligence interrogates Latvian citizens

Citizens who cross the border are asked about effectiveness of Russian propaganda.

It has been stated by Latvian president Valdis Zatleris, who is the head of the Parliamentary Committee on Security at the moment. He charges Russian intelligence agents with carrying out a covert opinion poll of Latvians near the Eastern border, The Wall Street Journal informs. It reminds the actions of Russia in Crimea before the annexation in many ways, a journalist Juris Kaza states.

Russian agents question people who cross the near-border Latvian and Russian region, Latgalia, in order to find out what is their attitude to Crimeas annexation and the ensuing events in Ukraine, the words of Zatleris are quoted by the newspaper. Many Belarusians and Russians live in Latgalia, Inopressa informs.

The Russians are interested by only one thing, how effective their propaganda is, Zatleris said in the interview.

In March an opinion poll held by GfK company demonstrated: at least 66% of Russian-speaking Latvians support the annexation of Crimea by Russia. There are much more people who find Putins actions unjustifiable among ethnic Latvians.
