The Baltic states demanded an apology from Putin, representing the Russian people, for their post war occupation and persecution of the Baltic states. Putin refused.
Is this political arrogance in the face of the truth?
Or is it an indication that Russia is simply a military giant, bent on imperialism, expressing it's distain for their former "territories". Is this and the fact that the Russian "federation" is building up their military from new nuclear missiles and aircraft carriers to being defiantly vocal against historical truth and democracy?

Of course I do not trust Putin, but why stop with him? My American tax dollars have poured into Putin's country for years to help them with their economy, while they continue to build a military and make friends with the Chinese. Sounds a bit suicidal on my government's part, right?
