What should be the strategy of confrontation towards Russia? This question has recently been frequently asked by various experts. And they, with an air of importance, give lengthy answers about what and how to do.

In fact, the answer is very simple. Ukraine is not the first country that bears the cross of confrontation with Russia, trying to escape from its influence.

The Warsaw Pact countries and the Baltic States have gone through all this. During the years of confrontation with the USSR, and later – with Russia, they realized that they need to act in direct contrast to the aggressor's statements.
