As reported by LSM, NATO recently made a film about the 'forest brothers' - partisans who continued armed resistance to the Soviet occupation of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania after the end of the Second World War.
It drew predictably irate reactions from Russian state organs and embassies. The video was also something of a departure for NATO, which generally focuses on contemporary issues and military exercises.
Bildt's tweet, which ramps up support for highlighting the national partisans' role in history, also links a story that traces how the Russian view of the the matter - closely resembling Soviet-era propaganda - is being disseminated across Kremlin-linked media. Additionally, the story examines the fierce official and civil response the Kremlin's line encountered in Lithuania.
The history of the Forest Brothers is a part of the modern history of our part of Europe. Was hidden for too long. https://t.co/K8GU4lbHCR— Carl Bildt (@carlbildt) July 19, 2017
