Russia announced its withdrawal from the Council of the Baltic Sea States



The Russian Foreign Ministry says that the termination of membership in the organization will not affect the presence of the Russian Federation in the region.
Russia officially withdraws from the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS). This is stated in a special statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

The statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs refers to the fact that the situation in the organization is “degrading”, and the EU and NATO countries have abandoned the “equal dialogue” on this site.

“The prospect of restoring normal work in the Council, which is increasingly bogged down in Russophobia and lies, is not visible under these conditions. We consider our country’s continued presence in the CBSS to be inexpedient and counterproductive. Russia will not participate in turning the organization into another platform for subversive activities and “Western self-admiration “,” the statement said.

The Foreign Ministry says that the termination of membership in the organization will not affect the presence of the Russian Federation in the region.

The CBSS was established on March 5-6, 1992 in Copenhagen at the conference of the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Baltic Sea States. The Council includes Germany, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Iceland, and the European Commission. The activity of the Russian Federation in the CBSS was suspended on March 4, 2022.

In addition, the combat crews of the missile formation of the Baltic Fleet worked out actions in the conditions of radiation and chemical contamination of the area, as well as repelling attacks by sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
