Europe is beginning to understand that protection from a number of challenges, including Russia, you can’t rely on U.S. aid. This was stated by the President of Latvia Vejonis Raymont, reports TVnet.

According to him, before NATO now there are several threats: instability in the South of the Alliance, Syria, North Africa, the growing influence of China. The politician said that one of the challenges is “showing its muscles, Russia”.
