Latvia’s Terrible Error
One can easily understand (though perhaps not forgive) Latvian hatred for and mistreatment of ethnic Russians living in that country. The 1940 “integration” of Latvia into the USSR was not exactly “benevolent.” Add to that mass deportations – one in June 1941 when the NKVD deported nearly 20,000 Latvian citizens to Siberia and a second in 1949, and there is ample reason to hate the Russia. But there will never be just cause for the events which took place in Latvia in March, with the approval of Latvian authorities.
