Stasys Bačkaitis. Dangerous undertows erode the stability of Central and Eastern Europe
Political and social stability of the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region is being slowly eroded by dangerous undertows. They tend to undermine the confidence and trust of the people in their governments and in the European Union (EU). The undertows, originating mostly in Russia, are sowing seeds of political, economic, energy and ethnic discontent as a way of gaining influence in and dominance over the countries that were once controlled by the USSR.
